Afternoon Tea Week

NAPA invites you to join thousands of care settings as we come together to celebrate Afternoon Tea Week 2022.

We love an Afternoon Tea at NAPA and feel excited about all the opportunities a week of tea-based activities and events can inspire.

Afternoon Tea Week is the perfect opportunity to take part in a range of activities that celebrate this quintessential English tradition; to meet people, chat, dance, laugh and eat a lot of cake – that is washed down with some delicious tea served in a fine china cup!

We have a series of NAPA Resources designed to support you to enjoy all that Afternoon Tea Week has to offer. Our resources have been created following consultation with NAPA members, thank you to all those who provided their feedback and shared their ideas and positive practice examples. We hope you find the information helpful and that you are inspired to plan fantastic Afternoon Tea Week celebrations!

Our digital resource has been created for you to use online and is interactive. There will also be links to some of our other resources as appropriate.

A reminder to NAPA members that there are thousands of activity resources in our digital platform, The Shed.

NAPA members can access The Shed HERE
