Willy Wonka to be theme of 2017 tea for children at Foss Mansion

UPDATE: Sessions 1, 4 and 5 are SOLD OUT!

The Woman’s Literary Union of Androscoggin County will host it annual children’s tea featuring “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” for boys and girls – and their adults – to be held in five sessions over two days in April.

The tea for boys and girls is a unique opportunity for children to not only see inside the historic Foss Mansion, but it is also a unique opportunity for the young attendees to experience entertainment specifically designed for their young minds and attention span in a beautiful setting.

In addition to the entertainment, tea, juice and snacks will be served. A boutique will be open in one of the mansion’s rooms and items for sale will include clothing to fit 18-inch dolls and other non-gender-specific play items to go along with the Willy Wonka theme.

The Tea schedule is on the right side of this page.
