Afternoon Tea with Marie-Elsa Bragg

Afternoon Tea with Marie-Elsa Bragg


Marie-Elsa Bragg will be joining us for afternoon tea at Cakes and Ale Café where she will be discussing her debut novel Towards Mellbreak.

Marie-Elsa Bragg is the daughter of renowned broadcaster and author Melvyn Bragg, and painter and novelist Lise Roche. Set in Cumbria between Spring 1971 and Spring 1994, Towards Mellbreak covers four generations of a Herdwick hill farming family. It examines religion, folklore and tradition at a time when farming life went through further industrialization and subsidy led changes. It also sensitively examines the consequences of government enforced rules on the farming community. Tickets are £12 for regular afternoon tea and £15 for prosecco afternoon tea.
