Tarot and tea to be offered at Franklin House

TEA and tarot is on the cards at Franklin House.

Tarot uses cards to help guide the listener through life.

Reader Queenie said she will offer open and question readings in 10 to 15 minute slots in accompaniment to a light morning or afternoon tea.

``People will be really curious,'' the former Melbourne woman said.

``I go on whatever comes up for guidance, or whatever might be coming up in their life.''

Franklin House manager Hilary Keeley said she hoped the days attracted a wider audience.

Proceeds will go towards the maintenance of the historic property.

``We thought we would do something a bit different and we're limited as to what we can do,'' Mrs Keeley said.

``There's got to be something in tarot for it to have lasted so long.''

She said attendees would be treated to a spread of scones with jam and cream, cupcakes and a sandwich.

The first Tea and Tarot is on January 28 from 10am to midday and 1pm to 4pm. Bookings can be made on 63447824 or email franklin@nationaltrusttas.org.au. Each Tea and Tarot costs $15.
