"Salon du Thé" @ Corn Exchange Newbury 6pm Saturday 12th March
Gideon Reeling have teamed up with Arts Council England and Corn Exchange, Newbury to develop this exciting theatre-cum-fine-dining event for performances in stately homes, historic houses and elsewhere throughout Summer 2011. Since the 17th century, afternoon tea has had a close association with the greatness of the country. The Salon du Thé explores the preciousness of tea itself and the lavish nature of many of the delecacies we associate with a really good afternoon tea, with cakes provided by ‘baker to the stars’, Lily Vanilli. Tea is a great and very British tradition, “...there are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony afternoon tea”, Henry James.
Gideon Reeling are currently creating a work in progress/sharing of ideas that we will air at 6pm in the Balcony Bar and would be very happy if you could join them.
East London Artisan Baker and Cake designer, Lily Vanilli selects only the highest quality fair-trade ingredients, combined with avant-garde cake designs and delicious recipes. Dubbed ‘baker to the stars’ Lily Vanilli stock the Harrods Food Hall, and have been enjoyed by Elton John’s Tie & Tiara Ball, Vogue, Hello Kitty, the Saatchi Gallery and Downing Street.
