Afternoon Tea at Evergreen

"The Dartmouth Heritage Museum is pleased to announce the return of its popular weekly afternoon teas for the summer of 2018!

Starting Friday, June 8 guests will enjoy a classic Victorian pastime at the majestic and historic Dartmouth landmark, Evergreen House. The menu includes freshly baked cookies and scones complete with jam, cream cheese, and, of course, piping hot tea. They will be served in the Green Parlour at Evergreen which overlooks Halifax Harbour.

The Afternoon Teas on August 24 and 31 will feature live music provided by Tidewater Trio, which is made up of siblings Alistair (piano and whistle) and Lydia Maksym (harp), and their mother, Jennifer Publicover (modern and wooden flutes). They will bring their eclectic mix of classical music, traditional music, and jazz to our  teas.

Lydia and Alistair are scholarship-winning students of the Maritime Conservatory of Performing Arts. Jennifer is a multi-genre freelance flautist, an instructor at the Maritime Conservatory, and a member of various groups, including the neo-traditional band Papilio. Learn more about Tidewater Trio here.

Tickets include admission to Evergreen House and a complimentary guided tour. As a special two-for-one offer this summer, tickets to this event also include admission to Quaker House, the oldest standing building in Dartmouth, redeemable within a week of purchase."
