Launch of The Life and Secrets of Almina Carnarvon : 20 July 2011
The Book Launch began with a small gathering of invited guests.
Tea and Sandwiches were served in the garden.
It was Almina's favourite tea, lapsang souchong.
The public lecture by Will Cross
The life and times of Almina
5th Countess of Carnarvon
At The Newport Centre.
This event was attended by forty people.
Will getting tucked in.
But leaving room for Side Car cocktails and Canapes, later. Again a particular favourite of Almina's.
The afternoon session was an opportunity for more guests to enjoy the day together and raise a glass or two to Almina's nine decades of life.
