Satisfy your afternoon tea cravings at The Dorchester – one of London’s iconic hotels – this coming October.
The hotel will be putting on its unmissable October Half Term children’s afternoon tea, with special entertainment by the English National Ballet School young dancers. This year, the theme has been created around Sleeping Beauty, where the programme will include narration, face painting, mini-tutus and crowns, as well as an introduction to good toes and naughty toes by the ballerina princess Aurora herself.
Key characters from Sleeping Beauty, including the King, Queen, Three Good Fairies, the bad fairy Maleficent, Prince and Princess Aurora, will be found pirouetting, plié-ing and jeté-ing among The Promenade tables – stopping to share magical tales with younger guests.
The Sleeping Beauty Afternoon Tea will offer guests a selection of cakes inspired by the magical story, and delicious savoury finger sandwiches and homemade scones. Accompanying adults can sink back and relax into The Promenade’s inviting sofas and enjoy the entertainment with a glass of champagne.
Sittings for Sleeping Beauty Afternoon Tea will be available between 12pm – 5pm Monday to Friday, featuring several 20-minute performances by the English National Ballet School.
Bookable online, Sleeping Beauty Afternoon Tea is priced at £68 per adult including a glass of Champagne and £39 for children aged 5 to 12.
