Get Ready for Our Easter Workshops

Celebrate the spirit of Springtime this weekend, from the comfort of your own home

With a floral workshop and gastronomical feast unfolding on Belmond IGTV, gather the family and prepare for the fun. Join Raymond Blanc OBE, our maître de maison of Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, as he prepares a springtime feast. From the beloved French ‘pistou’ soup to a slow-roasted shoulder of lamb, the mouthwatering display celebrates the traditional flavours of Spring. To make sure the dining table is beautifully decorated, tune in to Simon Lycett’s floral workshop to watch the botanical mastermind and florist-to-the-stars at work.
