Alice in Wonderland

The Eastgate Shopping Centre, Gloucester is bringing the garden into the Shopping Centre for the Easter holidays with a programme of family fun themed around the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.

On Saturday, 19th March, the White Rabbit will visit the Centre, to hand out mini Easter Eggs and a special Mad Hatter’s playing card, inviting families to the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party on Good Friday, 25th March.

On Good Friday, 25th March the Mad Hatter, Alice and Queen of Hearts will entertain children with crafts, games and family fun sessions between 11am and 1pm and 2pm and 4pm and children presenting their playing card to the Queen of Hearts will find out whether they have won a prize or have to pay a forfeit.

“With the new “Alice through the Looking Glass” movie to be launched in May, we thought it was a great opportunity to recreate a scene from Lewis Carroll’s adventures with Alice,” says Jason Robinson, Centre Manager.
“Working with our stores and the Ting Tang Theatre company, we hope to create a family activity which captures the feel of a Spring Garden and the magic of Alice’s Wonderland.”

On both Good Friday and Easter Saturday, Makendoo will also be in the Centre, inviting children to join them at Easter themed craft workshops between 11am and 1pm and 2pm and 4pm.
