Captivating Talks & Truly Terrific Teas

With Maggie Gallant, The British Woman

The British Woman, based in Austin, Texas, delivers engaging, fun, professional talks on cultural, historical and travel topics. Subjects range from the British Royal Family, to a roadtrip through Ireland, to female spies in WWII. Combined with a thriving afternoon tea business, The British Women is ideal for:

  • Country Clubs
  • Churches
  • Networking and social groups
  • Senior living communities
  • Corporate and private event planners

Book a standalone talk or combine it with a Truly Terrific afternoon tea event. With a British Woman themed tea, you provide the venue and we bring everything you need to impress and delight your guests. Whether you’re looking for a traditional Downton Abbey experience, a touch of Parisian flair, London hotel luxury or a Mad Hatters tea party, our events are authentic, exceptionally well planned and talked about long after. And every tea includes etiquette tips to make sure you’ll always know how to hold your teacup and eat your scone!

Captivating Talks

Programs that engage the senses through dynamic visuals, historical artifacts, evocative music, video clips, and small bites or sips. Each topic is immaculately researched, with many combining personal stories and insights. These are not lectures or history lessons, they are interactive performances that bring a group together to learn, laugh, reminisce and share.

Truly Terrific Teas

There’s nothing quite like the experience of a traditional afternoon tea hosted by The British Woman. Gather a group of friends at your home for an intimate party with a choice of teas, sandwiches, scones and pastries. Or book us for a larger occasion as a conference spouse event, a senior living social or an employee thank-you. We host events from six to sixty six.

What They Say about The British Woman

“When will the British woman be back?” is a question I am frequently asked.  The residents of my Assisted Living community just adore Maggie Gallant, a.k.a. the British Women.  She is, hands down, their favorite presenter.

“Maggie’s presentations are one of the most popular events at our community. She draws a large crowd, and the entire audience will be fully engaged throughout the entire presentation because they are always so fascinating and fun. Her topics are always intriguing, and our residents look forward to seeing what unique methods she’s going to use to teach them!”
