From the 70s through to the present day, Pat Albeck designed some 300 tea towels for the National Trust.

In this unique and quirky gift book for lovers of retro and British design, her son – the illustrator and designer, Matthew Rice – provides fascinating insight into his late mother’s design process for 80 of her featured National Trust tea towels.


The talk will take place at the end of the lunch and round off with questions from the audience. A book sales and signing session, arranged by Mr B’s Emporium of Reading Delights, will then follow.

Guests are invited from 12 noon with a 12.30pm start for lunch. Price includes a two-course lunch with a glass of wine. Tickets to be booked in advance
