You are cordially invited to Hatfield Place for an Enchanted Afternoon Tea! 

We are delighted to announce our Enchanted Afternoon Tea, taking place at the exclusive Hatfield Place in Hatfield Peverel, near Chelmsford on Sunday 16th October. 

The event starts at 2.00pm with guests being greeted by the incredible singing of Lara George in the beautiful entrance hall of Hatfield Place. After enjoying a glass of the newly launched NU Sparkling Cremant D’Alsace, there will be an opportunity to explore the prestigious House and the Courtyard Gardens.

The Afternoon Tea will be served in the stunning Orangery. The Charity is very proud to be working in partnership with Prestige Parties and The Big Balloon Room; all tables will have their own characteristics with a unique theme. It promises to be a truly magical experience, unlike any other.  

Helen Rollason Cancer Charity Head of Fundraising and Marketing Zoe Jay said; “We are so excited to be back at the beautiful Hatfield Place to host our Enchanted Afternoon Tea – an afternoon tea with a difference! Tickets are £35 each or £300 for a table of ten.  

A huge thank you to Ian and Alison Twinley for allowing us to hold our event – we really appreciate their kind support of our charity over the years.

If you buy a table of ten to our Enchanted Afternoon Tea, this would pay for a counselling session or complementary therapy treatment for six of our clients, making a real difference to local people, helping them through their journey with cancer.  

We’re a small charity serving our local community, and every penny raised at this event will go towards ensuring we continue to provide the best possible cancer care now and in the future. We receive no Government funding. We rely on our fundraising events and your support to continue this care.
