Catch your breath and enjoy a free, freshly made brew in this heart-warming show by Trigger. Have a well-deserved TEABREAK and as you stir your cup, gently glide through an audio journey of tea and how it’s found itself into our tea pots. Tea leaves have journeyed across continents and centuries to take its place as the great comforter of our time.

With tea served from Trigger’s beautifully hand painted tuk tuk, this gentle performance brings an uplifting moment of pause. Uniting people across the world and throughout our lives, inviting us to rest awhile, appreciate all that we have, honour moments that have passed and ready ourselves for what is to come.

Performance on Sunday 30 June included with your admission to Whitchurch Silk Mill, find out more about admission here
