Take a leap down the rabbit hole at Gladstone's Library

Gladstone’s Library is giving Lewis Caroll fans an exclusive opportunity to experience the library ‘after hours’ to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Alice in Wonderland.

An event dedicated to Cheshire cats, jam tarts and White Rabbits, Gladstone’s Library in North Wales is inviting a ‘curiously curious’ few to a special Mad Hatter’s Tea Party at 8pm on Friday, 15 May.

Part of Culture24’s ‘Museums at Night’ festival, guests will be given rare access to the Library after dark where they can read aloud their most-loved extracts from the 19th century novel.

Louisa Yates, Director of Collections and Research at Gladstone’s Library, said: “Alice in Wonderland is one of the most popular and most widely quoted and translated books ever written, and remains a firm favourite for both children and adults alike. 

“In a rare and exclusive ‘after hours’ celebration event, our Mad Hatter’s Tea Party will pay homage to the weird and wonderful classic novel, while showcasing the beautiful gothic-style Library. 

 “So, if you’re a big Alice in Wonderland fan and fancy a tea party with a twist, wind up your watch, take a leap down the rabbit hole and follow the White Rabbit to Gladstone’s Library.”

 The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party starts at 8pm on Friday 15th May 2015 and tickets are £7.50. To book please call 01244 532350 or visit www.gladstoneslibrary.org
