Sleeping Beauty Afternoon Tea

Once upon a time, in the beautiful setting of The Promenade, a team of chefs got to work creating a very special afternoon tea…

This half term we’re delighted to recreate the magical world of Sleeping Beauty, as we welcome the young dancers of English National Ballet School to perform during afternoon tea. As you enjoy Sleeping Beauty-inspired tea and cakes, the dancers will pirouette and plié around the tables, stopping to share tales with the little ones. There’ll also be face-painting and appearances from characters such as Princess Aurora, for an experience the whole family will love.

£75 per adult, including a glass of champagne
£42 per child (5 – 12 years)
