*Update - Book by 19th June to make sure you'll get a goody bag*
Are you on Instagram?
Do you like cake?
Do you want to meet up with other people who are on Instagram, like cake, and want to meet up to natter, eat cake, and take photos?
Then Instacake is for you!
The first ever Instacake is in Stratford upon Avon on 26th June 2018 at the Boston Tea Party Cafe on Henley Street, just a frivolous hop, skip and a jump from Shakespeare's Birthplace.
You can arrive any time after 10am, we will have tea, coffee and lashings of cake in the lovely, airy mezzanine of the Boston Tea Party. It'll be very relaxed and casual.
Then, suitably refreshed, we will head out into beautiful Stratford upon Avon at about noon to take photos of the most Instagrammable places in town. We'll split into groups, each with a lovely Stratfordian to guide us in a chilled and carefree manner to Tudor buildings, the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, along the Avon, and back. (You can mooch around independently if you prefer - we'll give everyone a map.)
There will be plenty of places to stop, take photos, buy a really good ice cream, or a G&T, and have a rest.
We will waft back through the doors of the Boston Tea Party at 2pm, for luncheon, more nattering, editing and posting our photos, and see all our hashtagged #InstacakeSUA photos on a big screen.
Any time after lunch, you can head home if you need to, or stay and natter, or go out to visit some of the attractions in Stratford.
Do let us know if you want to stay in Stratford overnight, either the day before or after, so we can give you recommendations of places to stay, and maybe meet up for breakfast or supper if you'd like.
I've managed to do all this for just £20. That includes tea or coffee and cake on arrival, plus the guided tour around town by one of my lovely, handpicked Stratfordian friends, and your choice of lunch with a drink, and a lovely goody bag* (full of stuff you actually want, not 'meh' crap.)
(*Note - please book by 19th June to guarantee you'll get your goody bag, this gives us a week to make sure we have enough for everyone who has booked. We will make a couple extra, but these will go on a first-come first-served basis. Tickets will still be £20 after the 19th.)
Tickets are limited, so please do book right now if you want to come.
You're very welcome to bring partners, at full ticket price, and if you want to bring children, that's fine - you can just order food and drink for them separately - but do let us know if you're bringing children, and how many.
You can even bring your well-behaved dog, parrot or Wookiee if you like.
The room we have is upstairs, and there's no lift I'm afraid. But if you'd like to come and can't get upstairs, we will do our best to split the party, and make sure everyone circulates between upstairs and where you are downstairs.
Do let me know if you have any questions, or particular requirements. You can get hold of me on my contact page.
