Alice's Day

The Story Museum is set to hold a day of theatre, live music, circus and family fun across Oxford this summer, in celebration of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

Alice’s Day will take place on 1st July, with events starting from 10am in venues across the town, including The Story Museum, Christ Church, The Ashmolean, Blackwell’s Book Shop, Bodleian Libraries, Museum of History Science, Museum of Oxford, University of Oxford Botanic Garden, Alice’s Shop and Oxford Castle.

The Story Museum is the organising association of this celebratory day.

Alice’s Day highlights

As this year’s theme is ‘riddles and games’, visitors will have the opportunity to participate in a number of activities similar to the ones that Alice ‘experienced’ in Wonderland.

Entertainment provider, Curious Company, will allow guests to ‘meet’ the Queen of Hearts, play a game of Wonderland croquet and participate in a ‘mad tea party’.

In addition, Circus Raj, a ‘supergroup’ of Rajansthan’s elite street circus performers, will demonstrate a range of acrobatics and illusions.

Finally, visitors to the town on the date will be able to take part in a Cheshire Cat scavenger hunt and get the chance to win a prize.

Further details for the full programme will be announced closer to the event.

About The Story Museum

The Story Museum is a registered charity with a vision to “enrich lives, particularly young lives, though story”. Having opened to the public in 2014, the museum works with schools and the community, and is currently raising funds to continue the development of its site and to bring the whole building into use.

During 2017, the museum is asking audiences to suggest which stories and story-related objects should become part of its finished collection, alongside a regular programme of interactive exhibitions and events.
