St Mary’s Church, Higham, Kent –A favourite church of Charles Dickens and now in the care of The Churches Conservation Trust took part in a Midsummer Tea Party in June 2011. The Friends’ of St Mary’s Church organised a themed event; “Mad Hatter’s Tea Party” inviting people to attend wearing a hat.

wearing ingeniously fantastic hat creations that made for a very entertaining afternoon. Jools Holland kindly opened our Tea Party surrounded by our own “Mad Hatters” which made for some great

Visitors enjoyed refreshments from “The Mad Hatter’s Tea Table” with a Mad Hatter Cake, complete with white rabbit’s watch and many other scrumptious “eat me” refreshments. The event was a huge success raising funds for the CCT whilst providing an afternoon of fun and laughter.

We have been constantly asked, “What’s on for this year’s Tea Party”; people have been thrilled with our response “Miss Havisham’s Wedding Feast”!
