An Invitation to Tea with Sir Edward Elgar on His Birthday!

2nd June 2024

Join us in celebrating the birthday of one of our greatest composers with a special guided walk of Elgar’s Hereford, hosted by the Hereford Guild of Guides, followed by Afternoon Tea at the Green Dragon Hotel.

Sir Edward Elgar lived in Hereford between 1904 and 1911, where he composed some of his best-loved works. Follow in his footsteps through the city with a walk illustrated by brief extracts from the music composed during his Hereford years. Explore key locations in the city centre and along the scenic river as our expert guide provides context for his career, from humble origins to becoming one of Britain’s most famous and well-loved composers.

Continue your journey with a light afternoon tea at the stylish Green Dragon Hotel, where Elgar was a frequent patron, and where you will have the opportunity to view documents written in Elgar’s hand.

Afternoon Tea at the elegant Green Dragon Hotel: Enjoy a selection of finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones served with cream and jam, and your choice of  Tea or Coffee.
