During this hectic time of year it’s important to schedule some down time. Sit down to a festive Christmas High Tea at the Greater Vernon Museum & Archives with good friends and family where you don’t have to do or think about anything, other than enjoying yourself.

With elegant tables nestled amongst our exhibits, you won’t find an atmosphere like this anywhere else. Indulge in delicate finger sandwiches, decadent desserts, and sip teas from our eclectic array of tea cups, while enjoying the company at your table.

The afternoon program hosted by the charismatic Gabriel Newman includes a sing-along to old favourites with Sally Evans and Molly Boyd, door prizes, and a prize for the best hat. Everyone is encouraged to wear their most festive hat. Do your Christmas shopping while you’re here and receive 20 per cent off in the gift shop.
