“Curiouser and curiouser!”
Alice Illustrated is a weekend of events inspired by John Vernon Lord’s illustrations of Alice in Wonderland, in collaboration with Depot Cinema, Lewes.
“We’re all mad here.”
Join us and our friends at Depot in Lewes for two of days of fun, surreal and sometimes mind-bending events, activities and screenings. Children will love the Mad Hatter tea party and hat parade. See Alice-themed work from local artists exhibited in our Studio, and dive deep down the rabbit hole for Depot’s surrealist dinner with a special Supper Club and hat competition.
