It’s a good day to look at Alice in Wonderland costumes as for the past five years the Story Museum in Oxford has celebrated an Alice Day in honour of the famous stories by Lewis Carroll. This year it is the 150th anniversary of the telling of that story, so Oxford in general, and the Museum in particular, have arranged a special weekend of activities around the city. These include a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, a chance to play croquet or giant chess and a real live caucus race tomorrow, Sunday. Whilst we are some distance from Oxford here in Essex, there is no reason why you cannot help celebrate this major literary event with an Alice event of your own. There have been numerous versions of the story on film and TV, and even a few variations such as ‘Malice in Wonderland’ and Wonderland-inspired videos such as Gwen Stafani’s ‘What Are You Waiting For?’ or, perhaps lesser known ‘Don’t Come Around Here’ by Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers. You can also find fan-made videos on YouTube, which mix the above hits with footage from established Alice films.
