There is no tea like Rennie's favourite

TEA TASTING at the Glasgow Art Club

Saturday 30 March 2019, 2pm – 3.30pm

£16, limited to 20 people

Join us for a special tea tasting afternoon and experience tea flavour and aromas with Dr Yupin Chung, 

Chair of The Seven Strings - Tea Connoisseur Society. Enjoy the four types of tea complemented by Scotland’s famous soft water. 

A selection of cakes prepared by the Club will accompany the teas. 

Jamboree Musicale                                              


Wednesday 03 April 2019, 7pm for 7.30pm

Recent new member Ralph McDonald (Baritone) with Mary Ann Tear (Speaker) and James Letham (Piano) return to GAC on 03 April 2019 combining their talents with the Colla Voce Quartet to give an evening of Wisdom, Nostalgia, and Nutterie through the means of Music and Word. You may think that an evening of Baritone, Piano, Speaker and String Quartet sounds tediously archaic…Well THIS ONE AIN’T.

Come and join us for music and words ranging from the “classy” to the “less than classy” As the old saying goes , “music and words to suit all tastes” performed for the worthy cause of The Art Club.

This event is open to the general public. Please book via eventbrite
