You’ll be served a traditional afternoon tea with sandwiches, cakes, scones with cream and jam, all served on fancy vintage crockery and washed down with tea, coffee and a glass of bubbly!
Meet your posh performers...

Welcome to The Posh Club
The Posh Club is a glamorous performance and social club for older people held regularly in five locations across London and the South East.
Each three-and-a-half hour event is styled as a tongue-in-cheek ‘posh’ 1940’s afternoon tea with three live showbusiness turns, volunteer waiters in black tie and vintage crockery.
Held in the heart of the community, The Posh Club provides regular access to live performance, social connectivity and intergenerational volunteering.
