Oh I do love to be beside the seaside!

On Friday 28 June 2019 we hosted our annual afternoon tea party in the Bishop Partridge Hall which was attended by over 100 guests.

Our theme for this year’s party was a vintage seaside look that featured colourful table covers, windmills, and seashells as table decorations and navy-and-white striped deckchairs for occasional seating.

Entertainment included an interactive selfie frame, a playful end-of-pier photo cut-out and giant games for fun.

Elegant sandwiches, cakes, pastries, and sumptuous scones were beautifully displayed in wicker baskets and upcycled frames to create an afternoon tea buffet.

Guests were welcomed with a glass of bubbly on arrival before they went on to explore the drinks station which offered made-to-order Aperol Spritz and Pimm’s, along with refreshing watermelon, lavender and cucumber coolers.

Near the balcony, our Head Chef and his team created an ice-cream bar with a carousel of toppings from fresh fruit to s’mores and hot fudge. Also on offer was pink candyfloss, a donut wall, and flavoured popcorn in paper cones.

Guests made the most of the glorious sunshine out on the balcony, taking in the views of Dean’s Yard and Westminster Abbey.
