Join us this summer and throw a Blooming Great Tea Party – it really is a piece of cake!

All done? Pay in your money I'm still planning

Our Blooming Great Tea Party partners

Tea and cake always taste better when you’re enjoying them with a friend, so this summer we’re very excited to welcome some wonderful guests who will be joining us for this year’s Blooming Great Tea Party.

We’re absolutely thrilled to be getting together with John Lewis for a cup of tea and a slice of something nice, taking the Blooming Great Tea Party out onto the high street.

From 26 April – 25 June, look out for some exciting tea party-themed products available in John Lewis stores across the UK. John Lewis will also make a donation to Marie Curie for every item sold.

Fancy joining the party for an extra special occasion? On 9 June, John Lewis will be hosting Blooming Great Tea Parties at John Lewis cafés and Place To Eat restaurants, with all in aid of Marie Curie.

We’re also delighted to be a part of the John Lewis Bringing Skills to Life programme. Together John Lewis and Marie Curie will be getting schools involved in the Blooming Great Tea Party, encouraging pupils to learn new baking skills and to throw their own parties on 23 June.


We’re very excited to be supported by Ringtons this summer for the Blooming Great Tea Party.

Ringtons, synonymous for their distinctive vans and home delivery service, have been providing tea to the nation since 1907.

They’ve created two fabulous hampers for tea party hosts to purchase. They’ll make a donation to Marie Curie for each hamper sold.


We’re very happy to announce that Wyevale Garden Centres, one of Marie Curie's biggest corporate partners, will once again be supporting the Blooming Great Tea Party this year.

Look out for more information about donations through sales of hot drinks, fundraising activities in centres, and much more coming soon.
