For readers who prefer an afternoon steeped in words and favour sherry over prosecco, our Afternoon Tea offers the perfect counterpoint to The Sunday Brunch. Traditional teas may come with an abundance of clotted cream, but alongside scones, sandwiches, luxury tea, and sherry, our event comes with a lineup of international authors. Rawi Hage (Beirut Hellfire Society), Alix Hawley (My Name Is a Knife), Emma Hooper (Our Homesick Songs), Rabindranath Maharai (Adjacentland), Melanie Raabe (The Stranger Upstairs) and Sofka Zinovieff (Putney) read from their latest works. This year we introduce a new selection of light teatime treats.
