It’s that time of year again, and as it is the 150th anniversary of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland – this Alice’s Day (under the slogan “Pictures & Conversations”) is going to be bigger and better than ever – have a look at the programme! The twelve chapters of the book will be re-enacted in many creative ways all around town; the Caterpillar will be giving advice at the Bodleian Library (Weston Library), and there will be a huge Lobster Quadrille at the Natural History Museum from 12:30 – which you can actually join (instructions here – will you, won’t you join the dance?).
A particular highlight will be the free anniversary lectures at the Old Fire Station – this year by Brian Sibley, broadcaster, writer and president of the Lewis Carroll Society – and media-expert Prof Will Brooker from the University of Kingston – and I am very honoured to be speaking alongside those two fantastic speakers!
Don’t miss out – join the dance on the 4th of July in Oxford!
