Dorchester Collection’s iconic British hotel, The Dorchester, will be hosting its unmissable October Half Term children’s afternoon tea from 23 to 27 October and this year, there will be special entertainment by the English National Ballet School’s young dancers. This year’s theme has been created around the children’s fairy tale Sleeping Beauty, with narration, face painting, mini-tutus and crowns, and an introduction to good toes and naughty toes by the ballerina princess Aurora herself.

This fairy tale setting will also include characters such as the King, Queen, Three Good Fairies, the bad fairy Maleficent, Prince and Princess Aurora pirouetting, plié-ing and jeté-ing among The Promenade tables, stopping to share magical tales with young guests.

As for what’s being served on the table, the Sleeping Beauty Afternoon Tea will feature a selection of cakes inspired by the fairy tale, along with savoury finger sandwiches and homemade scones.
