On this day 100 years ago, communities all over Britain celebrated the signing of the Treaty of Versailles, which officially ended the First World War.

The celebrations were known as Peace Teas and were the beginning of the famous British street party. With Peace Teas taking place in austere times, the food was simple yet the atmosphere jubilant with dancing, laughter, children’s games, festoons of colourful bunting and most importantly, plenty of tea. 

100 years later at Porters Row Cottages, we invite local children and their families to celebrate the signing of the Treaty of Versailles with a Peace Tea once again.
