A Taste of Britain Tiffin

A Taste of Britain Tiffin

Auckland, March 12, 2014 - It’s all about Britain at the Langham Auckland this April.

The Royals and the Rolling Stones are in town and our elegant new Palm Court has opened its doors, so to celebrate we’ve created a delicious Brit-inspired Tiffin Afternoon Tea.

Tiffin Afternoon Tea, reputedly started by Anna, the 7th Duchess of Bedford in the 1840s and first served at The Langham, London in 1865, continues to surprise and delight guests every afternoon in the sumptuous surroundings of Palm Court.

Here, the most exquisite little treats arrive on silver stands and fine Wedgwood china only to be devoured within seconds. So throughout April, we’ll thank Britain for this wonderful tradition and more, with a special afternoon tea menu.

There’ll be sumptuous treats from coronation chicken to jam roly-poly puddings, all on Wedgwood china, and matched with the world’s finest teas and Champagnes.

Better still, this Taste of Britain will put you in a draw to drive the amazing Jaguar XF for a week. It doesn’t get more British than that.

The Taste of Britain Afternoon Tea will be served daily at 11.30 and 2.30pm from April 1-30 in Palm Court. Make your booking now on 09 300 2924 or tlakl.palmcourt@langhamhotels.com

This was a lovely, varied concert with an obvious theme based on the natural world. It kicked off with Mendelssohn's sparkling Hebrides Overture, which had a wonderfully taut spring right from the start, and great colour from the woodwinds, especially the clarinets. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
