Afternoon Tea in Cumbria - May

Date: May 28th, 2022

Region: Cumbria

Event Details:

Join us at 2.30 pm on the 28th of May for a friendly chat over a cuppa at the Upfront Gallery, near Penrith in Cumbria.

If you haven’t been before it’s a really nice venue based in a rural setting, located in a beautifully converted 17th-century farm building. It has a delicious vegetarian coffee shop with plenty of tempting cakes and scones! (Gluten-free cakes are available). It’s nice and relaxed and has plenty of space to accommodate us.

We will have the opportunity to chat, connect and make friendships in a friendly safe space, whether you are sober or sober curious.

I know it can feel daunting meeting up with new people for the first time, so please let me know if you have any worries at all, or would like to meet up beforehand or meet outside.

We will meet inside the cafe at 2.30 pm. I have reserved a space for 10 people under my name. If you would like to attend, please book your place below, or email me for any more info at

We are a non-profit community and are asking for a £1 donation to secure your place. This donation is so gratefully received and will contribute to the Bee Sober Community Pot.

Bee Kind, Bee Brave, Bee Sober. See you there
