The Cauldron launches a kids festive Afternoon Tea


Edinburgh’s wizard speakeasy, The Cauldron, has introduced an afternoon tea experience for little wannabe-wizards.

The offering, designed for children aged 8 and upwards, provides the chance for magic fans to don robes and wield wands as part of the experience.

For £20 plus booking fee, each child can expect to help conjure a non-perilous potion using a little bit of magic from The Cauldron’s wall of Magical Creatures.

After spell-casting, little wizards will be treated to a fantastical hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows and will feast on sandwiches, cakes, scones and sweets.

Young magicians will also have the opportunity to befriend the venue’s owl.

The experience, which lasts for 1 hour and 15 minutes, will take place at 12.30 on Friday 20 December, and 12.00 on Saturday 21 December.

Matthew Cortland, co-founder of The Cauldron, said: “Christmas is about letting children experience magic and excitement. Young magicians can get into the festive spirit at The Cauldron when they dress in wizard robes and wield a working magic wand.

“This is where the magic happens this festive season, and little wizards will be totally blown away when stepping into our festive potion-making dungeon.

“With a guest appearance from our special owl, it’s sure to be a hoot!”
