Afternoon Tea Etiquette With Miss Sue Flay & William Hanson

The Secluded Tea Party is stupidly excited (If it is polite to be saying so!) to be offering a very unique and one off afternoon tea experience in Cambridge in partnership with the UK's leading expert and consultant in etiquette and protocol. 

William Hanson, one of the world's youngest etiquette specialists, will be co-hosting this afternoon tea party with Miss Sue Flay to help guests to understand the importance of manners at one of our most beloved mealtimes and most English tradition. 

See Williams' SUPERB Video Blog on this event HERE  

William understands that good manners and etiquette, which are based on common sense, should be universal. He strives to incorporate their proper use in a 21st century context, helping everyone to become more aware of, and sensitive to, the ways in which they conduct their lives. When he’s not stretched out on his sofa relaxing in his toweling robe watching repeats of Lark Rise to Candleford, or tending his renowned terrace herb garden, William provides first-class training and is a trusted advisor to private households, business & cultural organisations and schools alike, and has worked for several VIPs. 
As well as having recently broken a world record, of which if you ask him nicely, he will tell you all about when you come to meet us in September. 

We will be hosting a sumptuous afternoon tea to include a selection of delicate finger sandwiches, cakes and sweet treats and copious amounts of top quality loose leaf tea at a very quirky and luxurious hotel in Cambridgeshire, location to be revealed to paying guests nearer the time to add to the curiousness of the event itself. It will not disappoint and will be the perfect place to enjoy a relaxed afternoon tea with the young king of manners and all things politely British. 

Miss Sue Flay will be on hand throughout this very thought out afternoon to answer any questions on her local knowledge and information gained on Tea, Cake and everything afternoon tea related whilst William will talk you through how to both entertain politely as well as enjoy as a guest politely and will cover topics such as....

History of afternoon tea
Napkin etiquette
Scones - Jam then cream? Or cream then jam?

How to drink tea
Milk then tea or tea then milk?
Hosting manners
Good guest etiquette

See my very own Video Blog on this event HERE

You will leave this event with a knowledge and genuine passion from your fabulous and motivational guest speaker and educator and William will help you to be both a fantastic afternoon tea host or hostess, as well as the best behaved afternoon tea guest or recipient.

And if you don't, these words coming from his very own lips, he will have you deported for being a completely useless and rude British resident ; )
