Strathcona Friends of Music warmly invites families, students, the local community and general public to High Tea at Tay Creggan, its heritage-listed campus. The tea will be accompanied by chamber and choral music from talented musicians of all ages. Tours of the building and grounds will be led by students familiar with both the history and current usage of the building.
Tay Creggan was listed in June 2009 on the Victorian Heritage Register, for its ‘architectural significance as one of the finest examples in Victoria of the Victorian Queen Anne Revival style…and as one of the most picturesque houses built in Victoria in the late nineteenth century’.
Tay Creggan was acquired by Strathcona Baptist Girls Grammar School in 1969 and has been substantially renovated and extended. It is used today as the School’s Year 9 campus, and is available for public hire for weddings and events.
