Have you ever wanted to do something that has never been done before?
Anita Atkinson, an ardent fan of the Royal Family, always dreamed of setting up a museum. And she’s done it.
Anita has created the only museum in the world dedicated to the British Monarchy.
In 1977 (The Queen's Silver Jubilee year) she started collecting Royal memorabilia and holds The Guinness World Record having over 7000 items. As you might imagine her house was becoming too small to contain all of her items so the next step…to create the museum. Anita, along with family and friends, emptied a barn next to her farmhouse and together they began to make her dream come true.
Before her Royal Museum Anita introduced the people of Weardale, County Durham, to Royal Teas where some of her wonderful items were on display to be viewed at leisure while enjoying a cup of tea and a slice of cake.
POP-UP ROYAL TEAS
If you’d like to have a taste of ROYAL TEAS Anita will be holding a pop-up event on a canal boat at Paddington Basin in London on July 8th 2017.
