Milly’s Marvellous Afternoon Tea Party

Wednesday, 16 October 2019

Sold Out

Suitable for: 14+


There’s something marvellous happening at Rochdale Town Hall!! Sunday Times bestselling author, Milly Johnson, will be hosting afternoon tea in the regal setting of the Town Hall Committee Rooms, sharing the wit and humour that earned her the title ‘Queen of Feel-Good Fiction’. Her latest novel, The Magnificent Mrs Mayhew, debuted in the top 5 of the Sunday Times bestseller list.

Sophie is both admired by the press for her beauty and style, and vilified for being a typical trophy wife with nothing on her agenda but to support her husband in his ambitions – until she is rolled out in front of the press to read a prepared statement that she will, of course, be standing by her man through the sex scandal he is embroiled in. But the best made plans, even when drafted by the best PR man in the business, sometimes don’t quite turn out how they are supposed to…

The Sunday Express described The Magnificent Mrs Mayhew as ‘… a warm hug of a book about self-discovery and shaking off people’s expectations, with a distractingly hot local vicar thrown in.’

With delicious food served by the Clock Tower Dining Room, how could anyone say ‘no’?
