End of Year Formal: Afternoon Tea Party

Venue: External

Book your place



Join us for traditional English afternoon tea, with a Parisian twist at Mariage Frères tea emporium. This French luxury tea company started in 1854, and has its first UK tea room in a beautiful historic building in the heart of London's Covent Garden.

Included will be a sparkling wine or ice tea reception, with an introductory talk on the history of Mariage Frères and a viewing of their small tea museum.

Afterwards, afternoon tea will be served at tables, which includes tea, scones with jam and butter, and a selection of exquisite savoury treats and small French artisan cakes.

This will be a wonderful way to socialise with other international students and staff in luxurious surroundings, and we very much hope to form new friendships.

Please advise us if you have specific dietary needs. Priority booking will be given to international students who are departing soon.

Spaces are limited so early booking is essential. 


Please note that photographs and footage may be taken. These will be used by the University for marketing and publicity in our publications, on our website and in social media or in any third party publication.
