TODAY Oxford is celebrating the 150th anniversary of the publication of Lewis Carroll's first Alice in Wonderland story.

Right across the city organisations are hosting a range of events and festivities to mark Alice's Day, including The Story Museum in Pembroke Street where 150 people dressed as the character were due to gather this morning.

Later in the day the celebrations will feature a Mad Hatter's Tea Party at the museum starring a giant wonderland cake.

And elsewhere in Oxford the annual celebration – which has been running in the city for 10 years – will see singing and dancing at the Oxford University’s Natural History Museum.

There will also be a “Frabjous” Food Fair at Oxford Castle featuring the Queen of Hearts and the book's original printing plates will be displayed at the Bodleian Library.
