From Monday 11 to Friday 15 April 2011, The Dorchester will be putting on its celebrated Mad Hatter’s Afternoon Tea inspired by Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland with entertainment by English National Ballet’s young dancers. The Mad Hatter, the March Hare, the Dormouse and Alice herself will be found pirouetting, plié-ing and jeté-ing amongst The Promenade tables, stopping to share magical tales with younger guests.
The Mad Hatters Afternoon Tea includes a selection of Alice in Wonderland inspired cakes, pictured above, as well as delicious savoury finger sandwiches, homemade scones and pastries. Accompanying adults will be able to sink back into The Promenade’s inviting sofas and enjoy the entertainment with a glass of champagne.
Afternoon tea sittings are at 2.15pm and at 4.45pm, and are priced at £50 per adult including a glass of Champagne and £30 for children. (Prices are inclusive of VAT and exclusive of service charge at 12.5%). For every Mad Hatter's Afternoon Tea that is ordered, £1 will be donated to Cancer Research UK. For reservations, please telephone The Dorchester on +44 (0)20 7629 8888 or email email@example.com.
