Tickets on sale for 1930s-themed afternoon tea

03 May 2017

Tickets are now on sale for a 1930s-themed afternoon tea fundraiser to raise funds for family support charity, Home-Start Aberdeen.

Organised by the Friends of Home-Start Aberdeen, the event takes place at The Marcliffe Hotel & Spa on Sunday, 21 May. Those who attend can look forward to an afternoon of opulent nostalgia from the era, including Rat Pack-inspired music and dancing, featuring performers from Mark Cameron Dance and singer Dan Greavey of Ocean's 3.

Guests will be greeted with a welcome drink on arrival, with the opportunity to browse a variety of stalls. Refreshments and entertainment will then follow in The Marcliffe’s ballroom. Those who wish may to do so will also have the chance to participate in a group dance lesson. Well-known master of ceremonies Doug Duthie will preside over the afternoon’s activities, which also include exclusive prize draws and a charity raffle.

Tickets for the 1930s-themed anniversary tea cost £30 each, with tables arranged in groups of 12. Orders can be placed by emailing or by telephoning 01224 693545. Guests are also being encouraged to bring along a bag of unwanted clothing or accessories; these will be collected on-site for Home-Start Aberdeen’s George Street charity shop.

Home-Start Aberdeen has been working with families in the city for 30 years. The charity provides families who may be vulnerable or suffering from isolation with emotional and practical support. This support is provided by trained volunteers, who spend two to three hours per week with a family in their own home. Those who need help, or want to help, can find out more at
