Led by hand-picked experts in their fields, each Masterclass will be accompanied by bubbly and delicious canapes, created by the hotel’s renowned restaurant, Town House. Following the successful ‘Furnish Your Palace’ masterclass with Rockett St George & Saint Floral the next two masterclasses are –

  • Become ‘The Hostess with the Mostess’ with Dani Tucker, Founder of The Social Kitchen

We all know that Harry popped the question whilst they were roasting a chicken, so guests will go home with Dani’s famous roast chicken recipe so they can recreate the moment at home.

  • ‘Write Like A Royal’ – Calligraphy masterclass with Suzie Dicker, Founder of A L’Aise

Suzie aims to bring each pupil’s individual style and personality into the writing and guests will go home with their own calligraphy guide book, Royal Wedding inspiration sheet, calligraphy pen and pot of ink so they can continue to practice at home.
