Join us for Musical Afternoon Tea with live music performed by the outstanding British Army Band Colchester, in the luxurious surroundings of the gardens in The Hangar, Kesgrave Hall, set in the beautiful countryside outside Ipswich.

Enjoy a delicious afternoon tea while supporting the Army family. You will be served a glass of prosecco or sparkling elderflower on arrival. Then, indulge in a delectable afternoon tea which includes a selection of traditional sandwiches, house-made scones with Rodda’s Cornish clotted cream and Tiptree strawberry jam, as well as an irresistible array of cakes.

Upon arrival, from approximately 14:00pm, guests will enjoy a glass of prosecco or sparkling elderflower while listening to music performed by a Quintet from The British Army Band Colchester on the top lawn positioned at the rear of the hotel overlooking the beautiful grounds.

From 15:00pm, guests will move into The Hangar, a dedicated event space to enjoy their afternoon tea, while a larger ensemble from The British Army Band Colchester perform a variety of much loved pieces.
