Mailo Power has all the latest news on art, design and living AFTERNOON TEA AT THE HOUSE


WATERFORD WALLS


In conjunction with Bewley’s I’d like to invite you to our Afternoon Tea at the House charity fundraiser for the Hospice, celebrating our House’s unique 180 year relationship with Bewleys Tea. The original owners of the House, Waterford Ship Builders the White family, built the schooner Hellas, which in 1835 had the distinction of being the first ship to bring a consignment of tea direct from Canton, China to Ireland for Bewleys of Dublin. Captain Scanlan commanded the ship, importing 2099 chests of tea, breaking the London tea supply monopoly. Join us, the Power family and Bewley’s at the Athenaeum House Hotel to celebrate our unique heritage on Thursday 27th August, 2015. Head Chef Jean Baptist Dubois, has created a Tea themed delicious afternoon tea to accompany this unique event. Book your table any time between 1.30pm & 3.30pm. Tickets €25 per person and includes a glass of pink prosecco on arrival, delicious savoury and sweet treats galore, live music plus entry into a draw to win superb prizes on the day. To book your place contact Athenaeum House Hotel: T: 051 833999 E: info@ athenaeumhousehotel. com

As a highly reputable Irish owned company, with creativity at its core, Colortrend has enthusiastically supported other regeneration initiatives in the city including New Street Gardens.” Speaking about their sponsorship, Colortrend spokesperson said: “With the first brushstrokes at New Street Gardens, to this exciting and ambitious urban regeneration project, Colortrend is playing a part in building Waterford’s future layer by layer.”
