Solihull CEP hosts an annual Tea Party for Schools and Youth services to meet arts professionals and discover what the Solihull cultural sector has to offer.
The event includes an arts market with stalls hosted by arts professionals sharing their projects and programmes, focused talks, discussions and CPD, huge raffle prizes generously donated by stallholders, and plenty of tea and cake!
It is an excellent opportunity to discover bespoke programmes to meet curriculum needs, network with likeminded people, and form valuable connections for future projects and opportunities.
Our 2023 Tea Party hosted 27 fantastic organisations and freelancers to showcase their work, and saw nearly 100 teachers and youth workers come along and find out what they could offer them!
We were absolutely delighted with the turnout for our first event, and want to thank all our ticket holders and arts professionals for creating such a vibrant and joyful atmosphere!
"I just wanted to thank you again for a wonderful afternoon at The Core, Solihull yesterday for the Arts Tea Party. It was a fantastic opportunity to network, make links and find out about a range of other companies; I enjoyed the discussion groups too. A very well organised and purposeful afternoon - thank you!"
Claire Doyle, Streetsbrook School
