Join Bradford Civic Society for a Spring afternoon tea in the stylish surroundings of the city's historic Great Victoria Hotel. Your traditional afternoon tea of freshly prepared cocktail sandwiches, scones with preserves and clotted cream,plus an assiette of miniature tartlets and cakes will be served with Yorkshire Tea or freshly brewed coffee.

To accompany our afternoon tea, we will be joined by guest speaker Anne Fletcher, author of 'From the Mill to Monte Carlo'. Anne will tell us the fascinating story of a man who went from Bradford mill worker to Monte Carlo millionaire.

Amongst the men ‘who broke the bank at Monte Carlo’, Joseph Hobson Jagger is unique. He is the only one known to have devised an infallible and completely legal system to defeat the odds at roulette and win a fortune. But he was not what might be expected. He wasn’t a gentleman or an aristocrat, he wasn’t a professional gambler, he was a Yorkshire textile worker who had laboured in the Victorian mills of Bradford since childhood...

All are welcome for this special afternoon in the most wonderful of historic Bradford settings.
