Treat your mum to a glorious afternoon of delicious food, beautiful art and evocative music at the RWA Vintage Afternoon Tea.

Relax in the company of other pampered mums and vintage fans, while Shellac Sound serenade you with their collection of 78s played on original 1930s gramophone. Champagne served in classic Babycham glasses will be available to buy by the glass from our pop-up cafe/bar.

Come dressed in your finest regalia or rummage through our dressing up box, before having your picture taken in our photo booth by professional photographer, Alice Hendy (prints and discs available to buy on the day). Have your hair dressed in a classic style or try out a vintage make up look with Fiona Maynard of Beehive Brides (book your slot and pay on the day - more information from our Front of House team: 0117 973 5129).

Tickets include Papadeli tea/coffee, sandwiches, scones and cakes served on authentic Bristol Vintage crockery, entry to all four exhibitions, and a chance to browse our collection of original Penguin paperbacks and vintage fashion magazines.
