Christmas Afternoon Tea with Festive Pianist

Sunday 13 & 20 December 2020

Our festive afternoon tea embraces all the excitement of those last few days before Christmas in a beautiful English country house.

Let us set the scene! The house guests are beginning to arrive. It’s cold outside but inside a giant Christmas tree has been decorated and surrounded with brightly wrapped presents. The air is scented with pinecones and cinnamon and it’s time for tea. The table is laid with the finest china and there are the daintiest sandwiches, freshly baked scones and cakes and maybe even a glass of Champagne. Someone is playing Christmas carols on the piano bringing festive cheer…
