Life and Secrets of Almina Carnarvon

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.
