Winner of numerous awards, The Dorchester has been a byword for style and comfort for over 70 years. While palm tree fronds flutter above elegant couches with bright sun-light streams through the windows in the famous marble and gold Promenade in the entrance lounge of the hotel where Afternoon Tea is served, but from the 28th October – 1st November The Promenade at The Dorchester will be revamped for the 6th year in a row for the annual Children’s Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.
This unusual and exciting tea party is inspired by Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland and will feature impressive performances from the English National Ballet School’s young dancers and you may even catch a glimpse of The Mad Hatter, the March Hare, the Dormouse and even Alice herself dancing elegantly around The Promenade tables while stopping to share magical tales with all of the guests.
Choose from a wonderful varied selection of Alice in Wonderland inspired cakes along with sandwiches and delicious homemade scones and pastries. The hotel employs its very own tea chef, solely in charge of the afternoons selection of finger food, not to mention the 15-strong team of pastry chefs who intricately fold together the mouth-watering range of sweet treats and with their scones have been made to the same delicious recipe for over 50 years, we can certainly tell why. Awash with light this is no place for those who want to hide away in the shadows.
The Mad Hatters Afternoon Tea caters for everyone as accompanying adults are able to sink back into The Promenade’s inviting sofas and enjoy the amusing entertainment with a glass of champagne.
For every Mad Hatter’s Afternoon Tea that is ordered, £1 will be donated to Cancer Research UK.
If you feel like a spot of shopping afterwards why not pop into Balenciaga as it is situated just around the corner from The Dorchester.
