3rd Annual High Tea and Garden Party
Willistead Manor and Thyme To-Go continue the 2023 At the Manor event offerings with the 3rd Annual High Tea and Garden Party on Sunday, August 13, 2023, at Willistead Manor. The event features three seatings offered at 9:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m., and 3:00 p.m. Tickets are $50 per person, and are available now at www.ThymeToGo.ca. Seating is limited, and those interested in attending are encouraged to purchase tickets early.
The experience includes assorted teas served in tea sets from the Friends of Willistead’s own collection; a menu of picture-perfect tea sandwiches, pastries, fruits, scones, and traditional High Tea accompaniments; and guided tours of the Paul Martin Gardens from members of the City of Windsor’s Horticulture team at set times. Fancy High Tea hats are optional. For this event each year, the City’s Horticulture team sets out a stunning display of plants both inside Willistead Manor and in the outdoor Paul Martin Gardens, creating many opportunities for memorable photos.
Additionally, guests this year will have the opportunity to visit the new Coach House Historical Exhibition, which shares the story of Hiram Walker, the Walker family and legacy, the formation of Walkerville, Edward and Mary Walker, construction and history of Willistead Manor, and much more. This permanent exhibition is supported by the Charleigh Charitable Trust, the Walker descendants, Willistead Manor Inc., the Friends of Willistead, and the City of Windsor.
These unique At the Manor events and initiatives take place in the City’s historic manor in Old Walkerville, and are co-produced by the City’s Culture & Events team and the manor’s exclusive caterer. Thyme To-Go’s Head Chef Julie Myers designs special menus that draw inspiration from Willistead’s history and from her travels around the world, created with fresh and local ingredients wherever possible.
