Black Plate Wednesday is now firmly established in the MAC/Shelsley Walsh calendar and it will be entering its 3rd season in 2018.
Each year we make a few improvements, and for 2018 we are staying with one sitting only, starting at 3pm, and guests can stay as long as they like. We are also dividing the 4 events into two ‘on-the-hill’ in the Member’s tent area and two ‘in the courtyard’ with the benches and parasols (unless weather dictates otherwise).
This Black Plate Wednesday will be taking place in the Member’s tent area.
Having experimented with various ‘speciality’ drinks on arrival, we have decided to move to champagne as the drink of choice to welcome arrivals. These can be pre-ordered.
The afternoon tea will consist of a selection of sandwiches, cakes and scones with clotted cream. And it will all be served on period vintage china and 3-tier trays.
Please feel free to bring along dogs which must remain on leads while on the site.
Finally, it is not compulsory to bring a pre-75 classic car but we do encourage it and, if you do, then it will be parked in a special display area for all to enjoy.
We look forward to welcoming you.
Please note the event is weather dependent and therefore we potentially may cancel or change the location of the event. In the case of cancellation full refunds will be made.
