Join us for a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party at Eat Cambridge

April 19, 2014

We do love a top secret pop-up or underground supper club here at Eat Cambridge, and we’ve got a super exciting pop-up event lined up for this year’s Eat Cambridge Main Event at the Corn Exchange. Last year Jo and Ivana from Platelickers wowed guests with a lovingly prepared brunch, hosted in a beautifully decorated space tucked away behind the scenes at the food and drink fair.

This year we’re delighted to be working with local boutique hoteliers The House Collection to bring you The House Collection’s Mad Hatter’s Tea Party! If you’ve dined at one of the Collection’s hotels, Poets and Paddocks House in Ely and Newmarket respectively, you’ll know the importance they place on every little detail – from the crisp white tablecloths and Butler’s welcome, to the fine quality ingredients and exquisitely arranged plates of food. If you haven’t yet experienced the Collection’s signature style of fine dining, here’s your chance!

For one day only, at the Eat Cambridge Main Event on Saturday 17 May, The House Collection’s Mad Hatter’s Tea Party will be popping up for three sittings of fine dining, fun, and frivolity!  You’ll be treated to a peek behind the scenes at the Corn Exchange (and a spectacular view). The secret location will only be unveiled on the day, when your Butler arrives to escort you to a delightful pop-up dining room. The renowned chefs will prepare and serve their very own take on a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. A signature afternoon tea with a twist, think top quality loose leaf tea, beautifully crafted cakes and finger sandwiches almost too pretty to demolish, and glass teapots brimming with brightly coloured cocktails. Perfect for a summer’s treat and an ideal resting spot away from the hustle and bustle of the food and drink fair. Sittings will take place at 10.15am (with exclusive early entry to the event venue), 12.15pm, and 2.15pm. The cocktail afternoon tea experience costs £24.95 per person and tickets must be booked in advance ~ this unique event is set to sell out quickly so make contact with The House Collection now to secure your place.

Email or call 01223 653111, stating your preferred sitting time.

We’ll see you there – and don’t be late, your Butler and numerous special surprises await…
