For this year’s summer outing we plan to visit one of the local Bielefeld outdoor museums followed by high tea. This will give our members the chance to meet, have a chat and enjoy the summer weather together. The date for our outing will be Sunday 24th June.
You can join the event at two point in the afternoon.
Firstly, we will meet at 14:00 at the Farmhouse Museum (Bauernhaus-Museum) on Dornberger Straße in Bielefeld. This is one of Bielefeld’s finest museums and will at the time of visiting have an additional exhibition on called “Von der Stange” exhibition about the cultural history of Asparagus. You will be free to wander around the exhibition as well as the permanent exhibition of farming in the area until 15:30 when we will either walk or drive down the hill to the Villa Bozi for high tea.
The second part of the afternoon will be in the Villa Bozi on Albrecht-Delius-Weg in Bielefeld from 15:45 onwards. The main party from the Farmhouse Museum will arrive by 16:00 for the high tea. The Villa Bozi serves a pot of tea, scones and cucumber sandwiches for 15€ per person or 25€ for two. This is definitely very English and we might even get some clotted cream and strawberry jam. The Villa Bozi closes at 18:00 and our outing officially comes to an end.
Some members might choose to find another suitable watering hole in the Altstadt of Bielefeld afterwards.
The committee members look forward to see as many members as possible along with other family members too. We need to have numbers for the people planning to attend the high tea at the Villa Bozi so we ask you to fill in the booking form here:
This will let us know approximate number and help us with the planning.
