Free, but booking essential to reserve each child’s place for tea.
For children aged 5+
A very special treat as The Langham, London brings its delightful Children’s Afternoon Tea, usually served in its splendid Palm Court for a special festival edition, followed (4.30pm) by an event with the wonderful Sophie Dahl.
Sophie Dahl’s Madame Badobedah is a joy from start to finish and superbly illustrated by Lauren O’Hara. Madame’s flamboyant arrival at The Mermaid Hotel with her beady-eyed tortoise immediately raises the suspicions of Mabel, who lives at the hotel with her parents. Mabel becomes convinced she must be a supervillain and then the adventures really begin…
Sophie Dahl is the bestselling author of five books and Madame Badobedah is her first book for children. She is a contributing editor at Condé Nast Traveller and has written for Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Observer, Guardian and The Times
