Glen Eira Town Hall — Theatrette
The Monash Fairy Tale Salon will be hosting a curious afternoon of madness and muchness as we go down the rabbit hole in celebration of the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s classic Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Come along and learn about the author and illustrators who shaped literary history and gave us such wonderfully uncommon nonsense. For the bold at heart (or the Queen of Hearts), come dressed as your favourite wonderland character! This event is open to anyone who has a love for nonsense.
There will be music from Copious and from Louisa John-Krol with her merry band including Naomi Henderson, Nicholas Albanis and Gilbert. There will be papers on illustration, fashion, cats, playing cards and all things transmedial from Madeleine Hunter, Megan Russell, Rebecca-Anne C. Do Rozario, Fiona Price and Laura-Jane Maher.
Of course, there will also be a tea party with drinks, sandwiches and sweet treats! No sleepy dormice will be injured.
Entry is free and no bookings are necessary. Join us down the rabbit hole!
