Join historian and Fox & Squirrel founder Penelope Sacorafou for an afternoon of high tea - the highest of teas this country has to offer- as she interviews head archivist of Fortnum & Masons Dr Andrea Tanner on all things history, retail and most certainly tea. 

With only 12 spots available and set in a private space in Fortnum & Masons this is as exclusive as it is a once in a life time opportunity to experience, taste and learn all about Fortnum's past and present glory from the person behind Tea at Fortnum & Mason. 

The event starts at 5.30 pm and the interview is set during a classic afternoon tea (think towers of sandwiches, scones, cream and cakes) but not before tasting a myriad of tea blends. 

Included below is the Menu for the afternoon with Dr Tanner & Fox & Squirrel:
