 tea party 3The JW Riley Boyhood Home and Museum is excited to carry on this tradition which was started by Ballet East Dance Academy. In keeping with tradition the Tea Party will be served on real china, light snacks will be served, and of course tea! We have added a little Riley twist by encouraging the goblins as well, so bring the whole family. We will have poetry reading and special pixy guests who will teach us Pixy Etiquette and be available for pictures.
