Sprint installed a bespoke stainless steel kitchen for Daylesford, who served afternoon tea, light lunches and drinks at the store’s Big British Tea Party.

Offering ‘the highest tea on Oxford Street’ to coincide with the Diamond Jubilee and London Olympics, the terrace also featured a bandstand hosting British artists and a crazy golf course surrounded by nearly 200 four metre high birch trees.

The tea party was part of Selfridges’ Big British Bang, which celebrated the nation’s culture, history and tradition from Mulberry handbags to Marmite!

Sprint managing director David Ryan said: “This was an amazing, once in a lifetime project and we were thrilled when Daylesford asked us to get involved.

“We faced a few challenges along the way but were delighted with the results. We had to ensure all of the equipment could fit in the lift before hauling it over a one metre high kitchen wall.

“Daylesford’s executive chef, John Hardwick, spent a memorable summer cooking on the roof with a wonderful view of London.”

Many thanks to Selfridges press office for supplying the photos.
