Afternoon Tea

Sleeping Beauty Afternoon Tea with English National Ballet School

August 8, 2017 -

From Monday 23 October to Friday 27 October 2017, Dorchester Collection’s iconic British hotel, The Dorchester, will be putting on its unmissable October Half Term children’s afternoon tea with special entertainment by English National Ballet School’s young dancers.

This year tea has been created around Sleeping Beauty, with narration, face painting, mini-tutus and crowns, and an introduction to good toes and naughty toes by the ballerina princess Aurora herself.

Key characters from Sleeping Beauty - the King, Queen, Three Good Fairies, the bad fairy Maleficent, Prince and Princess Aurora - will be found pirouetting, plié-ing and jeté-ing amongst The Promenade tables, stopping to share magical tales with younger guests.

Sleeping Beauty Afternoon Tea includes 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.

Little guests have the chance to practice their plié at home as this year The Dorchester has collaborated with the world-renowned British ballet flats designer, French Sole, to run a competition during the week of the Sleeping Beauty Afternoon Tea. Each day a raffle will be drawn and the winning child will receive a personal shopping experience in one of the London French Sole stores, with the opportunity to pick a pair of shoes for themselves.

Sittings for Sleeping Beauty Afternoon Tea at The Promenade at The Dorchester are available between 12.00pm and 5.00pm Monday to Friday, featuring several 20 minute performances by 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 -12. (Prices are inclusive of VAT and exclusive of service charge at 12.5%).

For reservations or further information, please telephone The Dorchester on +44 (0)20 7629 8888 or email restaurants.TDL@dorchestercollection.com. Winners of the French Sole raffle will be able to pick a pair of shoes for themselves, to the maximum value of £160, excluding the Mrs Alice for French Sole collection.

The Dorchester’s School Holidays accommodation package featuring a complimentary bedroom for children provides the perfect opportunity to enjoy the hotel overnight and make the most of all London has to offer during October Half Term. ‘School Holidays’ is available from 16-26 October, and includes English breakfast for four, cookies, a free movie for children, and a complimentary bottle of champagne for parents, priced from £740 for both rooms.
