Edwardian Tea and Performance at Windsor Historical Society

November 10       4-5:30 p.m.


Windsor Historical Society and Windsor Women’s Club are hosting an Edwardian tea and performance by actress Kandie Carle on Saturday, November 10 from 4 – 5:30 p.m. and you are invited!    Beginning with delicious tea sandwiches, sweets and Red Rose teas, actress and historian Kandie Carle will bring her widely acclaimed “Edwardian Lady” show to the Windsor Historical Society.   


Ms. Carle’s program starts as she dons undergarments – the corseting, bustles and petticoats that gave Edwardian-era dresses their shape.  Clothing, accessories (fans, jewelry, hats, the contents of a lady’s purse), the role of servants in the Edwardian household, manners, and customs of the era will be shown.   Ms. Carle will also talk about inventions of the era, home life, and life in the workplace.  The program is lively -- a delightful mix of facts, humor and history. Last year’s Victorian Tea was a sellout without being advertised.


This year’s tea features the Edwardian time-period (1901-1910) to coordinate with Windsor Historical Society’s current exhibition Over There:  Windsor and World War I open for viewing before and after the program. The exhibition is sponsored by The Connecticut Humanities Council, Alstom Power, an anonymous donor, Rabbett Insurance Agency, and Windsor Federal Savings, with support from The Kernan Agency.  David Gillette Associates is the program sponsor.  Cost for the tea is $25.00, $22.50 for Windsor Historical Society and Windsor Women’s Club members.  Reservations MUST be made for this program.  Call the Windsor Historical Society at 688-3813 to make yours!


We are still looking for a few bakers of scones and quick breads, fancy cookies such as lemon bars, Mexican wedding cakes and tarts, trifles, chocolate-dipped strawberries and the like.  If you can help, please contact Christine Ermenc at 688-3813 or cermenc@windsorhistoricalsociety.org .
