The Antibiotic Research UK Great British Tea Party 2017 - 18th November 2017
90th anniversary of antibiotics

Raise a celebratory cuppa to antibiotics’ 90th birthday and save lives!

On Sunday 18th November 2018, as part of World Antibiotic Awareness Week, we are holding our annual flagship event The Great British Tea Party, giving you the perfect excuse to pop the kettle on, grab your friends, family and colleagues and indulge in a delicious slice, or two, of cake whilst raising vital funds for antibiotic research.

How to organise your Great British Tea Party

Your Tea Party can be as large or small as you want and can be held anywhere – at your workplace, in your home, your local community hall, your local hospital – in fact anywhere there’s a kettle. World Antibiotic Awareness Week takes place 12th – 18th November so why not make a week of it! What’s not to love about tea and cake?!

We need as many of you as possible to stop for tea and cake, raise a celebratory cuppa to antibiotics’ 90th birthday and raise as much money as you can. Help to keep antibiotics working for another 90 years (at least) and fight the impending health catastrophe of antibiotic resistance.
