Drink tea? Love tea? Have a slightly unnatural obsession with the sepia coloured brew of the gods? Then come along to sample Doctor Geof’s Fantastical Steampunk Tea Museum.

Linking with Longitude Punk’d at the Royal Observatory, Doctor Geof (one of the exhibiting artists) showcases weird and wonderful curios and memorabilia to bring you the history of tea you didn’t know existed!

To be the first to hear about this and similar events, sign up to our newsletter.

First Tea Company, 9-10 August

Truly committed tea fans can test the strength of their brew in an enlistment fair for the little-known, but highly prized, First Tea Company, and quiz Doctor Geof on the provenance of his many tea-based artefacts.
