Mothering Sunday Afternoon Tea & Local History Talk

Sunday, March 19th, 2023

1:00pm - 3:00pm
Northwood House, Cowes, Isle Of Wight, PO31 8AZ

It’s all about an afternoon of enjoying lovely food with friends and family while learning about some local history…join us for this special Mothering Sunday event.

Tim Wander, local author, house historian and charity trustee will give a fascinating talk about George Ward, the original owner of Northwood House who played a pivotal role in the history of Cowes in the early 1800’s. Tim is a leading expert in the history of George Ward and Northwood House and has written several books on the subject. You’ll be served a fantastic afternoon tea during the talk, brought to you by our award-winning volunteer event team.

Join us at either 1.00pm or 3.30pm for the experience which has limited space availability. The House bar will be open during the afternoon for additional purchases of alcoholic drinks.

The afternoon tea menu contains a selection of savoury finger sandwiches and bridge rolls, followed by a moreish selection of home made cakes, fresh baked scones (with clotted cream and strawberry jam) all washed down with a pot of tea, coffee or soft drinks (please state your choice when booking below).

Please state any dietary requirements and allergens on the ticket booking section which will be catered for on the day with alternative items on the table service menu. This must be stated in advance as extra dietary requirements cannot be serviced on the day without prior notice, sorry.
