Home / Events / Food and Drink / The Greatest Showman Afternoon Tea


“Ladies & Gents, this is the moment you've been waiting for!”

An afternoon not to be missed for all the family! Come and meet Barnum & Co. as we invite circus performers to wow you in the Gardens of Hempstead House Hotel followed by an hour long tribute show with games, dancing and sing-a-long tunes to those infamous and loved classic songs from The Greatest Showman.

Adults get to enjoy our exquisite traditional afternoon tea on the lawns of the hotel while children will be served their very own mouth-watering Circus Themed Tea all to themselves.

To finish the afternoon, don't forget that all important memorable photo to take away as a keepsake when you have the chance to meet the characters themselves!

Guests will be asked to arrive at staggered arrival times between 12.00pm and 12.30pm to allow for plenty of social distancing. Afternoon Tea will be served once all guests have arrived followed soon after by the tribute show.

Being an outdoor event, we ask you to bring your own picnic blankets or camping chairs, then simply enjoy the surroundings and relax while we offer a real treat for the whole family. Please note that the hotel will not provide tables and chairs outside. Shelter will also not be provided.

The experience will last for approximately 2 hours.

The price for the afternoon is £27.00 per adult and £20 per child to include the Afternoon Tea and professional Ballet. A family of 2 adults and 2 children qualify for an £90 family ticket. Children under 2, not requiring catering will be required to purchase an entry only ticket of £5 while babes in arms are complimentary.

Additional drinks can be ordered on the day. Why not treat yourselves to a Pitcher of Pimms or Prosecco on Ice to compliment the afternoon? Please note, that additional food and drink brought onto the premises is strictly forbidden.

Dietary requirements and intolerances can be catered for providing these are highlighted in advance to include gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian or vegan afternoon teas.

Following the outdoor hospitality guidelines permitted as of 17th May, parties are permitted to book from any size between 2 and 10. Please be assured that we remain vigilent at this time and will continue to seat seperate bookings 1m+ apart to allow for social distancing.
