The building was erected in the early 1700’s as a bank originally, then a pawn brokers and eventually a clockmaker’s named G.E.O. Andrews who constructed the clock on the front of the building but more prominently the clocks in the tower of Shoreditch Church
Time for Tea has become known as one of the most familiar landmarks in Shoreditch because of it’s authentic historical aesthetic and prominence in the community; It has been used for a number of period film and tv productions as well as photographic shoots and contemporary events
Time for tea was at the forefront of 1940s swing events in London about 11 years ago; we ran The Modern Times club at the Great Eastern Hotel in Liverpool st. where vintage dress was imperative and everyone received old fashioned dance cards. After approx 5-6 years we were putting on the ritz to approx 200-400 people at the 1930s Titanic ballroom in central london, and collaborated with the famous Whoopee club for a joint halloween masked ball for approx 600-800 people ….
