Author’s afternoon delight

Ladies, if you like afternoon tea – and who doesn’t? – there is an event just for you at the Caledonian, the Waldorf Astoria’s hotel in Edinburgh. The hotel’s new idea – ladies’ Societea afternoons are being launched with an afternoon entitled History of the Lady. Edinburgh author Sara Sheridan will examines the role of British women from the mid-17th century into the early 20th century. She will be exploring why social status was important and how the terms of “being a lady” changed. Sara will then mingle with guests answering questions and signing copies of her best-selling ‘Mirabelle Bevan Mysteries’ books. The afternoon kicks off with champagne in the salon before a spectacular afternoon tea in the dining room. It’s on Thursday 12 March and the £50 ticket includes a copy of one of Sara’s books. With Fraser Allan back overseeing the kitchens of Galvin Brasserie de Luxe and the Pompadour by Galvin, its good to see that the child-friendly dining continues in the Brasserie with a special Children’s Club event on Mother’s Day with kids making chocolate truffles for their mums.
