ATLANTA—Ulster Project Atlanta will host a high tea before the 13th annual WB Yeats Foundation’ Celtic Christmas Concert Saturday, Dec. 17, in the fellowship hall of Glenn Memorial Church in Atlanta from 5-7 p.m.

The church is located next door to the Schwartz Memorial Performing Arts Center on the Emory University campus, where the concert will take place.

The tea will feature a hearty supper meal catered by Fado Irish Pub, harp music and a visit from Santa. Cathy Smallwood, tea expert and owner of Allmytea, Inc., from Durham, N.C., will begin the festivities with a brief presentation on the history of high tea, and John Stephens, director of Theatre Gael, will recite Dylan Thomas’ “A Child’s Christmas in Wales.”

At 7 p.m., a Christmas Pied Bagpiper will pipe the crow next door to the Schwartz Center in time to get seated for the 8 p.m. curtain call of Celtic Christmas 2005.

Tickets for the high tea are $20 per person or participants can save by buying a combination ticket for the meal and concert for $40 per adult and $30 per child.

Proceeds from the tea will benefit Ulster Project Atlanta, an organization dedicated to promoting a peaceful parity of esteem between Roman Catholics and Protestants in Northern Ireland by building tolerance, trust and ongoing positive relationships among potential leaders from these Christian traditions.

The Celtic Christmas concert is Dec. 17 and 18; for tickets call (404) 727-5050.
