Get steeped at the wildest tea party in town, again!

Surrounded by Dalnavert’s heritage gardens, join us for the 2018 Oscar Wilde inspired Victorian afternoon tea with music by The Helen White Quartet, Wilde history with comedian and author Lara Rae, and some theatrical selections from Wilde's oeuvre. New this year is a cocktail bar with tea-inspired summer cocktails to accompany the sophisticated sandwiches and dainties expected at an afternoon tea and, oh yes ... courtesy of our friends at the Amsterdam Tea Room... THERE WILL BE TEA!


Theatre, music, laughs and afternoon tea! It's a light snack including fancy sandwiches and dainties. Various teas will be offered to you AND a complimentary signature tea-infused cocktail (1 free per ticket purchased-cocktails will also be available for purchase).

Plus a charitable tax receipt which you will receive after the event through CanadaHelps
