Celebrating 155 years: The Langham 24-hour Afternoon Tea Party
2020 has been quite the year so far to say the least. While we can’t all be together again just yet, we have noticed all of your posts on social media about how much you all miss one of our favorite traditions—Afternoon Tea at The Langham Hotels & Resorts all over the world. And this is why we at The Langham, Boston, alongside our global Langham colleagues, are coming together for a very special honorary event on June 10th.
June 10th is The Langham Hotels & Resorts 155th anniversary and we couldn't think of a more fitting way to celebrate than with a “24-Hour Virtual Afternoon Tea Party.”
The Langham, London is known as the birthplace of what we all think of as the 5-star hotel “Afternoon Tea.” The Langham hotels around the world offer decadent afternoon teas for both guests and locals, giving people a chance to pause and savour the day. While we haven’t been able to enjoy a glamourous afternoon tea in recent weeks at our hotels worldwide, we know you all miss this activity as much as we do. That strong sentiment is where the idea to honor our anniversary with a virtual 24-hour afternoon tea party came from.
We will be following the sun throughout the day and therefore the festivities will begin in Sydney, Australia and will end in Pasadena, California. Our hotels across the globe will be sharing fun afternoon tea viewing entertainment throughout the day and here at The Langham, Boston we have been hard at work planning some really great videos, interviews and demonstrations for you all to enjoy.
The party will be broadcasted via Facebook Live for our guests. We are encouraging everyone to get in the spirit with our recommended dress code of a ‘hint of pink’ while enjoying your own cup of tea at home. The whole day will be interactive, you will be able to ask us questions and leave comments on all the fun things we will be streaming.
Our segments touch on everything from creating a beautiful pink floral arrangement to making the perfect cup to tea to the history of our hotel and city. You will hear from hotel management, our brand partner ambassadors and local experts on all these fun topics.
Don’t forget to add this event to your calendar for June 10th. Our segments start at 9:30am ET and are spread throughout the day until around 9pm ET.
