1940’s High Tea!

Gracie-Ann’s are celebrating their first Birthday by hiring the Three Belles to sing for customers. The Three Belles are a wonderful 1940’s singing group and just the perfect accompaniment to a lunch date with the girls!  (or the boys…)

The event is ticket only on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th November only.  There are three time slots, 12, 2 and 4 and tickets are £18 per person for High Tea which is great at lunchtime or mid afternoon!  Gracie-Ann’s caters for children so don’t worry if you are bringing little ones, plenty of Highchairs to go around. Why not dress up and make a day of it?!

Happy first Birthday Gracie-Ann’s.
