Queenie Tea is standing for election, as MP for Loughborough. She much prefers sitting but is willing to stand for a little bit.

Do you have General Election fatigue - already? mardyarts are adding a little colour to the up and coming 2019 General Election by throwing Queenie Tea into the political cake mix. 

As the curtains are drawing in and the smell of bonfires fill our nostrils, Queenie Tea is holding off from heading to warmer climes beneath the towels in the airing cupboard to prepare for her Tea Party, to be held on the auspicious date of the 12th December 2019. 

Unbeknown to her, the satirical tricksters, Sally Boon and Neil Broughton have signed her up to stand for parliament as the sole member of the Queenie Tea’s Party. Be ready for a heady mix of word play, puns and absurdism, over the next few weeks. 

mardyarts are seeking contributions to Queenie Tea's Campaign Kitty.

Queenie has submitted a completed set of nomination forms together with a deposit of £500 to the (Acting) Returning Officer on the deadline day for nominations (14th November). She was slightly shy of the £500 fee, having only brought £3.60 of 20p’s with her, so mardyarts cobbled together the outstanding monies. She's worth it.

Can you help Queenie Tea raise an additional £500.00 towards the marketing of her campaign. The money raised will pay for the printing of a leaflet that will be mail-dropped by Royal Mail (free of charge), to all constituents of Loughborough. 

  • Queenie Tea is apolitical.
  • Queenie Tea is a piece of hauntological art.
  • mardyarts aims to join the time honoured tradition of satirical candidates standing in General Elections and to create a bit of fun! 
  • Queenie’s aim is to raise awareness of The Tea Party she will be holding on the 12th of December. Tickets will be available soon; prices, times and venue yet to be confirmed.
