'Discover the Way of Tea'

Come and join our new season of toddler-friendly, hands-on events, designed to explore our collections through all the senses.

Our two presenters will introduce you to the 'way of tea' and take you on a mythical storytelling tour, exploring tea-related Museum objects.

This is followed with the sensory session in the Learning Studio. Here, toddlers can play, touch, smell and taste fruity elements of tea and create their own toddler, caffeine-free teas.

Adults can also enjoy a tea-tasting and tea sommelier experience with Valerie Diederichs of Team Tea. There will be things to take home too...
