Afternoon Tea at 29 Glasgow - Charity Event

I recently received an invitation to attend a charity event in 29 Glasgow and part of the event included afternoon tea. I had heard loads of amazing things about afternoon tea in 29 Glasgow but I was curious to see how they could provide a nice afternoon tea experience to a large group of people, all at the same time. The event was held in the Supper Club which is a few floors up. For any of you who haven’t been to 29 Glasgow, it is a beautiful location. The stairways were really pretty and I was loving the look of the place already. Then I walked into the Supper Club - it was just so elegant - I loved it. There were a number of large tables with plenty of seats around them, beautiful flower arrangements on each table and amazing fairy lights everywhere throughout the room. The look and feel of the room was just right up my street. There was also some lovely music in the background which really just added the finishing touches to a lovely event.

So to the main event (well the main event for me) the food. You can see from my photos that the food certainly looked delicious and thankfully I can say it tasted as good as it looked. So first up was a plate of sandwiches - there was four different sandwiches:- egg mayonnaise, chicken tikka, ham & cheese and a fish wrap. I didn’t have the fish wrap but I ate all the others and they were so tasty and I think it was quite a big portion.

Next up were the tasty scones - which I might add were still lovely and warm to touch. And of course, you can’t have scones  without the jam and cream so for research purposes I had to have the jam and cream on the scone. It was totally delicious.

Ok I will admit at this stage I was beginning to get a bit full and was wondering if I was going to be able to fit anything else in. Who I am kidding, there is always room for cake - as I’ve been told by Sam, my 7 year old sidekick, cakes and sweets go to the heart and not the stomach so even if you are full you can still eat cake. So next I went for the chocolate brownie which was delicious and very moreish. After that I went for the pastry with a raspberry on top. This was all kinds of delicious … I really wanted to eat all of them but I’m sure the others on the table wanted to eat them also (and really I don’t think I had any room left).

So I have to admit at this stage I was done, I really couldn’t fit another thing in - had I not been full I could have sampled the mini muffins and the strawberry tartlets. Both of which look amazing and anyone who tasted them said they were delicious.

I have to hand it to 29 Glasgow, I really wasn’t sure if it was possible to produce a nice afternoon tea experience for a large group of people, but it really was a great dining experience, everything was perfect. The staff were also amazing, nothing was too difficult for them and they were so friendly.

The Event
The charity event that I attended was organised by the Glasgow Rape Crisis Centre to mark 40 years of support services for survivors of sexual violence, abuse and exploitation. There were a number of interesting speakers on the day with the event being opened by Anna Ritchie Allan, Chair of the Rape Crisis Centre Board of Directors. Angela Constance MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Communities, Social Security and Equalities and Dr Veena O’Halloran FRSA FSAS Director of Student Experiences and Enhancement Services, Strathclyde University also spoke on the day.

The Glasgow Rape Crisis Centre delivers support to survivors, their partners and family members in Glasgow, Renfrewshire, East Renfrewshire, East Dunbartonshire, West Dunbartonshire and Inverclyde. The Glasgow Rape Crisis Centre offers a wide range of different services reflecting the diversity of the population they cover and understanding that sexual violence can be experienced by women regardless of age, class, race, religion, ability or sexual orientation.  

Finally, a special thanks to Happy Customer Events for organising such a great event.

Thanks a mil for reading.
