What’s On In-Store: May
To mark our partnership with landscape gardener, Diarmuid Gavin, on The Harrods British Eccentrics Garden for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2016, we’re celebrating all-things floral with a series of special events this month.
The Harrods Floral Afternoon Tea
A showcase of floral-inspired fancies turns a traditional afternoon tea into an even more fragrant affair. Discover lavender and peach macaroons, jasmine and orange chocolate mousse, hibiscus and strawberry jelly with summer fruit, lemongrass yoghurt mousse with white chocolate and thyme and lemon madeleines, all served on exquisite Wedgwood china (you can find Wedgwood's collections on the Second Floor). Enjoy all this in The Conservatory, which will be modelled on a quintessential English garden in honour of the event, or at home courtesy of the Food Halls.
Available from Wednesday 4th May until Tuesday 31st May 2016 in The Conservatory, Fourth Floor. £34 per person for afternoon tea or £44 per person for afternoon tea with one glass of Champagne. Please contact email@example.com or call +44 (0)20 7225 6800.
