The first Fish Creek Tea Cosy Festival was held from Friday 17 May to Saturday 25 May 2013 and included a range of events designed to appeal to pretty much everyone!
Madame Flavour’s Corinne Noyes officially opened the Tea Cosy Exhibition, which was open to the public every day of the festival. Australian fashion designer Prue Acton judged the Tea Cosy Competition entries.
There were Devonshire teas, live music and bush verse, films (Alice in Wonderland and Tea With Mussolini), the Basia Mille Poetry Walk, the High Tea, Nonchalant Bombasi-tea with Anne Norman, a colour workshop with Merv Moriarty, damper and tea lanterns at the Scout Hall, story telling and painting at the Childrens Cafe, Elders Day with entertainment provided by kindergarten and school children, and the Makers Fair Day which showcased the work of local artisans, street performers and musicians.
