Central Florida residents can experience Prince William and Kate Middleton’s Wedding on April 29th 2011 LIVE at Dickens Coffee and Tea Room, an authentic and exquisitely British Tea Room in Lake Mary, Florida.
The coffee and tea room will display the wedding on a large flat screen television live at 5:00 AM, which coincides with the time difference of 10:00 AM in the UK, when Big Ben will chime 10 times for the Royal Wedding of the decade to begin. In honor of that celebration, Dickens will open at 5:00 AM and serve a traditional British Wedding breakfast while watching the nuptials of the Prince and Kate Middleton.
The tea room’s décor consists of a large black and white Dickens novel scene and each week guests are treated to an inspirational quote by Charles Dickens. Shelves and table tops are ceremoniously treated with antique British china, Welsh dressers, handmade tablecloths and napkins, and vintage linen and tableware. Delicacies include Quiche of the day, the Ploughman’s lunch, scones and other pastries. Dickens Coffee and Tea Room has hosted baby and bridal showers, as well as birthdays and Orlando’s Brit Club.
According to owner, Debbie Arrigall-Watkins, herself a Brit, “The "art" of "having tea" or “taking tea" is not just eating and drinking - it is a social event - it is a time for people to sit down with family, friends and acquaintances and enjoy good conversation; to RELAX a while - which is an art we are losing as a nation.”
Tickets for the event are $35 and reservations are required.
