Series of informal interviews with local artists and performers held over a nice cup of tea by Elizabeth Darcy Jones, Bromyard’s tea poetess.

Liz has built up a core of common questions that bring out interesting aspects of the artist’s past achievements, future ambitions and view of the world, as well as insights into what they think of Bromyard and what they think of tea!
