Take a trip down the rabbit hole and celebrate Alice’s Day for the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s 'Through the Looking-Glass' with a day of adventure in Oxford.

Alice’s Day is a festival held every year to celebrate all things Alice in Wonderland, with a variety of events held across the city. 

Venues holding Alice’s Day festivities include the Ashmolean Museum, The History of Science Museum, Oxford Botanic Garden, Blackwell’s Bookshop, Alice’s Shop, Oxford Waterwalks, The Oxford Festival of the Arts and The Story Museum.

Families visiting Broad Street will be able to meet a smart-looking white rabbit who is 'late for a very important date' and then head to a Looking-Glass Unbirthday Party with Alice and her friends.

For those unable to make their way into the city, events will also be held online. Chris Riddell and Cerrie Burnell will be holding a special Draw-A-Long event featuring Looking-Glass heroes on the Story Museum’s YouTube channel.

Councillor Mary Clarkson, cabinet member for culture, leisure and tourism said: “Alice’s Day is a unique Oxford event that allows both our residents and visitors to the city to see Oxford in an enchanting new light. We at Oxford City Council are proud to support this accessible and family-friendly celebration.

“I encourage everyone to get involved in celebrating Alice’s Day. Even if you can’t attend in person, there are lots of online events to entertain the whole family.”
