Enjoy a scrumptious afternoon tea nibbling delicious sandwiches and cakes whilst renowned etiquette expert, Diana Mather, talks about the fascinating history and social impact of this amazing beverage. We follow its story back three thousand years to ancient China and chronicle its journey to Europe and then Great Britain, where it was an exotic and expensive luxury. The growth of the British Empire saw tea being grown in India and the relaxation of taxes meant it became affordable for everyone. From “the silent assassin” to the “universal pick-me-up”, tea has played a huge part in our lives for over three hundred years.
Diana was a presenter and Newsreader for BBC Northwest for over ten years. She is a regular contributor to television and radio programmes, giving advice on etiquette, image and style and is in increasing demand as a speaker. She now travels the world teaching social and business manners. She has taught Afternoon Tea etiquette in India, China, Iran, Uzbekistan and the UAE, as well as introducing many international clients to the delights of Afternoon Tea at Fortnum and Mason in London! She has written four children’s books and her titles for adults include ‘Surviving the Media’, ‘ImageWorks for Men,’ ‘ImageWorks for Women’, ‘Body Language Secrets’ and ‘50 Secrets of Confident Communication’.
