The Giant Tea Party

The Giant Tea Party
Saturday, August 29, 2015 to Sunday, August 30, 2015

Everything stops for tea - and that's certainly the case as we celebrate the 150th anniversary of the creation of Alice in Wonderland.

The Mad Hatter will be your host, with a whole range of family friendly activities involving some of your favourite characters.

There will be 150 golden balloons to celebrate the 150 years of Alice, filled with some special offers and spectacular prizes for some lucky people to pop on the day.

Activities: Live Music, food & drink stalls, craft workshops, giant garden games, face painting (fee applies), performances from Kathleen Davis Dance School, funfair rides (fees apply), food & drink stalls.
