Do you know what life was like for ladies in the era of Queen Victoria? Queen Victoria was the monarch of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland from 20 June 1837 until her death in 1901 – a total of 63 amazing years!
You will learn a little about her life, and the expectations of ladies who lived in this era, reliving the history at a regular event in Manly, Queensland. It is an afternoon especially for ladies of the 21st century, where they will spend time doing what their counterparts in the Victorian era did, then exploring the historic house that was once the home of the Mayor of Manly, before a sumptuous afternoon tea in the grand dining room.
This is an opportunities for ladies to dress up, (if you don't have a grand hat, don't worry as they are available for guests to use). It is a great ladies only event, and can be arranged as a fundraiser or as a birthday or special celebration.
Bookings are essential, and names of attendees submitted to the office for a formal invitation from the Queen to be sent to guests, who will receive details of the time and place – usually a Saturday afternoon around 1 pm, and only for groups of 6 or more.
Guests will participate in activities before preparing for the grand entrance to the historic home, with photos at the entrance, followed by formalities which were part of the etiquette of the times.

When will you see Queen Victoria? She will appear during afternoon tea in the grand house.
