The new picnic hampers contain fresh summer food and drink from the world famous department store and are priced from pound sterling30 to pound sterling50. Only 48 hours notice is needed for ordering.

The seven choices of menu are themed to reflect different English regions, with the Cornish Coast hamper including clotted cream and the Highlander including Scottish salmon.

Harrods' wine department has selected bottles to complement each individual menu and hampers can be delivered direct to your venue if requested.

Powerpoint must be too comlicated for them.
