Camaraderie, good cheer, good conversation and good food will reign when the CU@SC series returns with a Victorian Holiday Tea, hosted by Dr. Vivian Thomlinson, on Sunday, December 7 from 2 to 4 p.m. The special event is hosted by the Cameron University School of Liberal Arts and takes place at the Simmons Center’s Chisholm Hall. Admission is $10 and $5 for children. CU students, faculty and staff are admitted free with valid CU ID. Seating is limited, and reservations are required. To RSVP, call 580-581-2491.
The Victorian Holiday Tea will feature a traditional “high tea” with scones, clotted cream, crumpets, finger sandwiches and trifle. A selection of fine teas will be provided by Distinctive Décor of Duncan. In keeping with Cameron’s current Academic Festival, “Sustainability: Challenges and Opportunities,” Thomlinson will present “The Late Victorian “Green” Movement: The “Handcrafted Aesthetic of William Morris et al,” a brief program focusing on the movement by Morris and others that was centrally concerned with the benefit and value of man’s relation to nature during the industrial age.
CU@SC’s Holiday Victorian Tea is made possible by the Simmons Center Community Spirit Program.
