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

Review: The Magic Flute - Magic Moments

Max Rashbrooke: Mozart’s The Magic Flute is an extraordinary tale, blending a story of great solemnity, of elegant music and Masonic virtue overcoming hatred and discord, with elements of extreme silliness and pure fantasy. .. More>>

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
