‘Better Barkingside’ Tea Parties

Did you know that King Solomon High School in Barkingside was opened by King Hussein of Jordan? Or did you know that Kathy Kirby (singer from the 60’s) was born in Barkingside? Her big hit was “Secret Love” originally made popular by Doris Day.

This Thursday we’ll be hosting two customised tea parties at Fullwell Cross Library for local residents as part of the Better Barkingside project.

Join artist and tea hostess Sadia Ur-Rehman on Thursday 20th June at 11am and 3pm for tea, fancy snacks and Barkingside-themed parlour games including the ‘Barkingside Quiz’. Share your memories and experiences of your local area and contribute to the wider Better Barkingside project delivered by the London borough of Redbridge.

Suitable for adults aged 16+, only 25 places available for each tea party.

Tickets are free and available via Eventbrite:

  1. Nice to meet you this morning, I hope you enjoyed your tea, and your trip to Eden.
    Let me know if cornish cream tea needs to come to London I will happily bring the cream and sones.
