The Something Else Tea Tent was born in 2008 at the first ever Bearded Theory. Today she sails completely solar powered as an intimate stage, sometimes acoustic, sometimes open mic and even as a main stage at smaller events.
In the corner, you’ll always find incredibly good cake, real coffee (including the wonky variety) and a vast selection of teas..all served by a smiling, if quirky, crew.
You’ll often find us at festivals as the 24 hour space for those not quite ready for bed when everything else stops, and as a welfare point.
The Tea Tent is housed in a 45ft x 30 ft marquee and draped in red and black with comfy sofas and benches, and houses a stage in one corner.
She is available, on her own or as part of our full set up, for private parties, weddings and other events. Other decor options are available.
