WONDERLAND will once again be brought to Oxford this July as the city celebrates all things bizarre to mark Alice's Day.

The annual festival, which this year will be held on Saturday, July 2, is a day-long celebration of Lewis Carroll’s classic children’s novel Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland.

Venues across Oxford including The Story Museum, Natural History Museum, Bodleian Library and Oxford Castle will host weird and wonderful activities throughout.

Families can sing and dance a Lobster Quadrille, join the Caucus-Race, take a seat at the mad hatter's tea party and enjoy Alice-themed street puppetry from Barcelona theatre group Teatro Nu.

This year's theme is 'animals' and visitors are encouraged to don their best bunny ears for a 'white rabbit trail' across the city.

Story Museum spokesman David Gibb, pictured here in the Pembroke Street venue's finest mad hatter garb, said: "Alice’s Day 2015 saw the 150th anniversary of the publication of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and the largest Alice’s Day to date, with thousands of visitors flocking to the city centre to celebrate.

"With Alice’s Day 2016 set to build on last year’s success, this is one trip down the rabbit hole that you’ll want to be on time for."
