Friday 17th April - Champagne Edouard Brun Dinner
By popular demand, Hartwell House is once again co-hosting the Champagne Edouard Brun Dinner. Founded in 1898 in the Grand Cru village of Ay by the banks of the River Marne, this is still a family business handed down the generations. Philippe and Emmanuel retain the age old traditions to bring such fine champagne as we will be tasting during the course of the evening. Cost is £67.50 per person including VAT. A special accommodation rate is available to those attending the dinner at £180 per room based on double occupancy, to include Wi-Fi, cooked breakfast, use of the Spa and VAT (subject to availability).
Friday 24th April - Cashmere and Pearls Luncheon
(Buy one Pashmina and get one Free!)
Two well known local companies, The Cashmere Centre and The Pearl Company, will introduce you to the world of luxury that is cashmere and pearls. Ever wondered what makes a good cashmere sweater? Why are the prices so different and what is the difference between 2, 4 and 8 ply cashmere? Victoria Pollock, Head Designer at The Cashmere Centre, the UK’s largest cashmere specialist, will be on hand to answer all of these questions and more, along with tips and advice on caring for your precious garments. Also on show will be a selection of their comprehensive cashmere range.
The perfect complement to cashmere is, of course, pearls. Adrienne Gannon, Head of Product Design and Purchasing at The Pearl Company will be in attendance to tell all there is to know about our favourite jewellery. How do you tell a real pearl from a fake? How does an Akoya pearl differ from a Tahitian? All this and more with the chance to view the Pearl Company’s unique range of affordable luxury.
As an added bonus the Cashmere Centre is offering 2 for 1 on any purchases on the day, and there is a 50% discount on selected pearl items. Cost is £35.00 per person inclusive of a two-course lunch, a glass of Prosecco, coffee and VAT.
Saturday 9th May - The Yapp Wine Luncheon
Celebrate general election victory, drown your sorrows or, more likely, figure out what happens next at our popular annual three-course lunch. Appropriately this magnificent stately house was once the seat of the exiled King of France, Louise XVIII. Could that be an omen?
Tom Ashworth of Yapp Brothers (vintners of Mere, Wiltshire) will be hosting a Wine Luncheon at Hartwell House. Guests are invited to arrive at 12.30pm for a glass (or two!) of sparkling wine, to be followed by Chef’s delicious three-course lunch with specially selected wine served with each course. The complete event costs just £70.00 per person and includes reception drink, lunch, all wines and VAT.
Reserve your place for this extremely popular luncheon with Yapp Brothers by calling 01747 860423 direct.
Wednesday 10th June - The Royal Horticultural Society Luncheon
In conjunction with the Royal Horticultural Society, visit Hartwell House and join head gardener Richard Jones.

Sunday 12th July - Summer Tea Recital
