Salisbury Vintage Tea Party

Salisbury City Council’s Communities Team invited the older residents of Salisbury to a Vintage Tea Party on Sunday 13 October which celebrated the end of this year’s Silver Salisbury at The Guildhall, Salisbury.

The celebration was a huge success with over 80 of Salisbury’s older residents attending. The Communities Team would like to thank all those who contributed to the event and to everyone who came along and made the day the success that it was.

Salisbury City Council was successful in receiving funding by the Bring Joy Foundation which played a key role in making the afternoon possible.

‘All Parties and Events’ gave everyone the opportunity to capture fun memories with vintage style props at their photo booth. Photos can be viewed here: https://allpartiesandevents.smugmug.com/Vintage-Tea-Party-Salisbury/.

The Old Sarum Furniture Company kindly loaned the team various items such as tea pots and plates, and flower arrangements were beautifully created by Claire Merrifield; both added fantastic decorations and vintage vibes to event.

Gilbert Scammell, the Tesco Champion kept everyone hydrated by donating soft drinks for the day.

Attendees enjoyed 1920’s Jazz and Swing music from The Gershwin Gang, and The Wellington School of Dance encouraged people to get up and have a go at Ballroom and Latin American dancing.

The Communities Team were delighted to have Irene Kohler there to receive a small gift of appreciation from the Mayor of the City Council, Cllr John Walsh. The Mayor and Mayoress, Carrie Walsh joined in the fun and spoke to many who attended.

Salisbury City Council has been delighted with the great feedback received from the event. The Communities Team hope to host the successful event again next year and bring more vintage fun to The Guildhall.

Thank you to Simon Ward Photography who took these fab pictures of the event.
