At Home: Victorian Afternoon Tea

Saturday 23 May, 2pm

National Library of Ireland Facebook

Join us for a virtual "At Home" visit, where historical costumer and Heritage Expert, Melissa Shiels, will take you through the customs of a Victorian Afternoon Tea. Melissa will focus on the clothing that middle and upper class women wore for these social visits in the 1860s, as well as discuss some of the niceties of taking afternoon tea in the mid-nineteenth century. Brew a pot of tea, dust off the good china, and tune in for an old-fashioned visit using modern technology.
