Mad Hatter’s Tea Party at The Dorchester

From Monday 26 October to Sunday 1 November, The Dorchester will be putting on a special afternoon tea inspired by Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. The hotel’s award-winning afternoon tea will be served with pirouettes, pliés and petit sautés as dancers from English National Ballet, dressed as some of the favourite characters from the book, will be found among the specially created decorations and flower displays. Children can look out for favourite characters including the Mad Hatter, the March Hare, the Dormouse and Alice herself.

Accompanying adults will be able to sit back and enjoy the entertainment with a glass of Champagne, delicious savoury finger sandwiches, homemade scones and a selection of indulgent cakes and pastries.

The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party will be served on The Promenade at The Dorchester from 26 October to 1 November 2009 at two sittings, 2.15pm and 4.45pm, and is priced at £47.50 per adult including a glass of Champagne and £30 per child, plus service. For every Mad Hatter’s Tea that is ordered, £1 will be donated to Cancer Research UK.
