Sleep­ing Beauty Af­ter­noon Tea, Lon­don

Wine & Dine - - TRAVELLER -

For one week in Oc­to­ber, The Dorch­ester in Lon­don brings to life the clas­sic tale of

Sleep­ing Beauty, in a de­light­ful col­lab­o­ra­tion of gas­tron­omy and bal­let with the English Na­tional Bal­let School. If you’re in the city be­tween 23 to 27 Oc­to­ber, bring your little princess to the Sleep­ing Beauty Af­ter­noon Tea at The Prom­e­nade, fea­tur­ing con­fec­tionery, scones and savouries in­spired by the fairy tale. Mean­while, young dancers from the bal­let school will en­ter­tain as key char­ac­ters from

Sleep­ing Beauty (look out for the King, Queen, Three Good Fairies, the bad fairy Malef­i­cent, Prince and Princess Aurora) pirou­et­ting amid the ta­bles.

Other treats in­clude face paint­ing, mini-tu­tus and crowns. A daily raf­fle will be drawn where the win­ning child will be treated to a per­sonal shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence at French Sole, a Bri­tish bal­let flats de­signer who is also col­lab­o­rat­ing with the ho­tel. The tea is priced at £68 per adult in­clud­ing a glass of cham­pagne and £39 for chil­dren aged five to 12.

The ho­tel is also rolling The Dorch­ester’s School Hol­i­days ac­com­mo­da­tion pack­age to co­in­cide with the local half term school hol­i­days. Avail­able 16 to 26 Oc­to­ber, the pack­age (£740) in­cludes ac­com­mo­da­tion for a fam­ily of four in two rooms, daily break­fast, a free movie for chil­dren, and a bot­tle of cham­pagne for par­ents. dorch­ester­col­lec­tion.com
