Frights, Camera, Action! This Halloween, Royal Lancaster London is directing something spooky, and the biggest twist in this thriller...everything is black and white!

Built in 1967, Royal Lancaster London is going back to the 1960s for Halloween to celebrate its 50 th Birthday. Re-launching following a mega £80 million renovation – or re-‘vamp’ – the hotel is ‘thrilled’ to announce the hair-raising Halloween Afternoon Tea, available from 17-31 October 2017.

Indulge in a truly spook-tacular experience with the Halloween Afternoon Tea, inspired by 1960s classic horror movies. A very cold welcome awaits you, with Alfred Hitchcock classics flickering from a projector and The Little Shop of Horrors’ Audrey sitting on your table. Don’t feed her meat!

Pull the curtains back on a scene of savoury classics; though not all is as it seems... are you brave enough to try the Axe-Carved Beef with Horseradish; the Ominous Crab Sushi and the Pitch Black Pudding Scotch Egg?

Sink your fangs into an array of sickly-sweet confections so good they could bring the dead to life. Things get grisly with a Cursed Blackbird Macaroon; Psycho Marbled Lollipops; Black Sunday Battenberg; Night of the Living Tart; and a Haunted Panna Cotta.

The final nails in the coffin are the Chocolate and Coconut Scones, served fresh from the oven with Homemade Blackberry Jam and Clotted-Blood Cream. The Halloween Afternoon Tea is accompanied by a selection of fresh loose leaf teas and a glass of Lanson Black Label or the slightly sweeter Lanson White Label.

Royal Lancaster London invites you to embrace your inner Hitchcock and capture a chilling photograph of the Halloween Afternoon Tea. To enter, all photos must be in black and white and use the hashtag #WeAlwaysScare to win a complimentary Christmas Afternoon Tea.

The 1960s Halloween Afternoon Tea is priced at £35 per person and is served from 2pm
until 5.30pm.

The tempting treats, available from just £5, will include toppings such as chocolate and honey, with the honey being produced by the bees on Lancaster London’s roof.

BeesLancasterHotelThe Lancaster London, a hotel with a huge amount of history and a penchant for honey hosts the London Honey show this October. (7th October)

The hotel has ten beehives on their roof and has produced so much honey this year that it has been sold, gone into their menus and their cocktails to great effect. We need more bees so this is a great cause to support - who knows, maybe you can get turned on to bees and set up your own beehive!

There are food and drink stalls at the Honey show as well as a display of hives, stalls providing information about honey and beekeeping, equipment vendors and demonstrations.

There is an award ceremony in the evening where the best beekeeper of the year will be announced.

All proceeds go to Bees for Development, which supports beekeepers in underdeveloped countries.
