In keeping with their Irish heritage, The Doyle Collection is reviving the art of storytelling alongside the famous British pastime of taking traditional Afternoon Tea. Launching their own unique take on a timeless classic, The Kensington Hotel will be hosting its first ‘Afternoon Tea and Storytelling for the Little Ones’ on Thursday 28th November. Real-life Matildas will love this family-friendly afternoon at one of London’s most elegant and charming hotels – where all the family is made feel at home.
In collaboration with The National Youth Theatre, The Kensington Hotel will introduce ‘Mr. & Mrs. Doyle’, who will visit the hotel with their magical storytelling chair to read and perform children’s classics with a twist. Each month, a new story will be created by the amazingly talented storytellers so that grown ups and little ones can keep coming back for more! Kicking off these tales will be a take on children’s favourite: ‘The Princess and the Pea’.
Inspired by children’s classics, the Afternoon Tea for the ‘Little Ones’ menu includes a selection of tempting triangle sandwiches with fillings such as heavenly honey roast ham & mustard, extremely eggy mayonnaise & cress and super sweet strawberry jam; ludicrously lovely vanilla fairy cakes; tremendously terrific fruity marshmallows; choccy chip chocolate brownie fingers and generously iced Gingerbread men, as well as traditional home made fruit scones served with jam and lashings of clotted cream.
The ‘grown ups’ will enjoy their own version of afternoon tea, served in the decadent surroundings of the drawing room of the Kensington Hotel, from 4pm until 5.30pm – a great after school treat. The hotel will also give each child an old fashioned lucky bag filled with an array of goodies to take home.
‘Afternoon Tea and Storytelling for the Little Ones’ will launch on Thursday, 28th November, from 4pm until 5.30pm.
‘Afternoon Tea and Storytelling for the Little Ones’ will take place on the last Thursday of each month starting from January 2014.
Tickets are priced at £20 per child, £20 per adult.
