Afternoon Tea Etiquette With Miss Sue Flay & William Hanson Returns...


After the success of our very first Afternoon Tea etiquette Workshop in Cambridge with The Secluded Tea Party, we are very pleased to be returning to help you learn your traditionally British manners over a luxurious afternoon tea with Miss Sue Flay herself and the UK's leading expert and consultant in etiquette and protocol, William Hanson.

William Hanson, one of the world's youngest etiquette specialists, will be returning to Cambridge to co-host 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. 


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. 


Miss Sue Flay has an unhealthy obsession of David Bowie and Tarantino Films, but also a passion for both traditional and more modern afternoon teas, following the success of her themed events, all based around afternoon tea and her love of baking, she joins forces with William to understand that good manners and etiquette, which are based on common sense, should be universal. Striving 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.We will be hosting a luxurious afternoon tea to include a selection of delicate finger sandwiches, scones, cakes and sweet treats and, of course, copious amounts of top quality loose leaf tea at this fabulous Cambridge hotel. 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 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....
