HOLIDAY TEA AT THREE

A Chartwell Booksellers Tradition

HOLIDAY TEA AT THREE

In September 1941, while visiting Manston Aerodrome in Surrey to inspect No. 615 Fighter Squadron, his own honorary RAF unit, Winston Churchill was offered tea proudly prepared by the airmen. “Good God, no,” he replied, demurring. “My wife drinks that. I’ll have a brandy.”

We invite you nonetheless to join us for HOLIDAY TEA AT THREE, our annual tea dance, this Saturday, December 17, featuring music by Vince Giordano and his Nighthawks.

Happy Holidays!
