Keep up appearance by joining English stage and screen veteran Patricia Routledge for morning tea.

The lady of the house is speaking and she has asked you to join her for a very special dinning event.

We all know her best as comical wannabe society queen Hyacinth Buckett (that’s pronounced ‘bouquet’ you know) in the hit show Keeping Up Appearances and for her superb turn as the elderly sleuth in Hetty Wainthorp Investigates and now this renowned star of theatre, film, television and radio is coming to Brisbane and you have the chance to share a cup of tea with her.

On Friday 9 May and Saturday 10 May Patricia Routledge will star in the stage show Admission: One Shilling at Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) and on the morning of 9 May she will take up residence at The Lyrebird Restaurant in QPAC for a delicious morning tea and a question and answer session with guests.

Located on the ground floor of QPAC, The Lyrebird is QPAC’s à la carte restaurant, offering delicious dining in a comfortable setting and a menu that changes regularly to take advantage of seasonal produce. For this special morning tea event, A Conversation with Patricia Routledge, guests will have the chance to sample of range of delicacies from the restaurant’s menu. Both sweet and savory treats will be on offer and gluten free options will also be made available so nobody has to miss out on the fun.

A Conversation with Patricia Routledge will run from 11am until 1pm, tickets are $99 per person (plus booking fees) with all proceeds from the event going to The Actors’ and Entertainers’ Benevolent Fund.
