The Oscar Wilde Season
"I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms"
... so said Oscar Wilde over one hundred years ago. Perhaps he even penned this quote whilst enjoying a glass of Absinthe or a late night supper in our Grill Room, now renamed the Oscar Wilde Lounge in his honour. Whilst we do not disagree, there has been another art form firmly on the rise since our namesake's heyday; culinary art.
In celebration of our award-winning afternoon tea service (Best Traditional Afternoon Tea 2017) which takes centre stage daily in the Oscar Wilde Lounge, we have joined forces with the makers of the Oscar Wilde Season, a collection of some of Oscar Wilde's most beloved plays, set within the historic surroundings of the Vaudeville Theatre.
Enjoy a beautifully composed day out including Champagne afternoon tea in the Oscar Wilde Lounge and Band A tickets to one of the Oscar Wilde Season productions.

The Importance Of Being Earnest
