If you fancy a little trip off the moor for something special, then we have a rather splendid opportunity for you: Alex Mendham and his Orchestra are to play in the Grand Ballroom at the Burgh Island Hotel, for an afternoon filled with delightful food, glamour and unforgettable music.

Alex Mendham and his Orchestra are widely celebrated for their spectacular shows, combining jazz and swing music of the 1920s and 1930s with the modern energy and passion of their youthful years. They epitomise
Hollywood’s golden era.

When it comes to evoking the sound, charm and white tie elegance of vintage Hollywood or the intoxicating speakeasy vibes of the Roaring Twenties, the Orchestra are without parallel: from their original instruments and hair pomade to slick down their locks, to their sharp tuxedos, no detail is overlooked.

Speaking on BBC Radio 2, Jonathan Ross said: “Alex and the Orchestra are incredible, there’s nothing quite like them!”

It will be a rare chance to step back in time to the exciting and fabulous world of the 1920s and ‘30s whilst you indulge in the finest vintage-style afternoon tea, accompanied by a glass of Taittinger Rose Champagne. What’s not to like?!
