Pratt’s Jack Ewing will portray “Tudor the Merchant” at the tea, held in a 100-year-old Tudor building. Ladies and gentlemen in Victorian-era costumes will serve savories, sweets and tea. Tea guests may come in Victorian finery, although that is not required.

The $18 ticket also provides entry to an exhibit of the paintings of St. John native, the late Mace John, at the Ida Long Goodman Library, and an exhibit of antique toasters by Wayne Konkel of Pratt. Konkel will be on hand to talk about and demonstrate a portion of his collection, which dates back to 1910. The toaster exhibit will be at the American State Hospitality Room.
