The weird magic of Wonderland comes to Priory Gardens

 

Mad Hatter Charlotte Kinnaird and Josie Goddard's AliceMad Hatter Charlotte Kinnaird and Josie Goddard's AliceOne hundred and fifty years after the classic children’s book was first published, the Mad Hatter, Queen of Hearts and Alice herself brought the magic of Wonderland to the Priory Gardens in Marlborough yesterday (Sunday).

And during Alice's Enchanted Family Picnic – a party thrown by mayor Margaret Rose for the community – actors from Marlborough Young Actors kept their characters faithful to the original story: Alice pouted as much as she laughed, the Queen of Hearts never cracked a smile, and the Mad Hatter engaged adults and children in meaningless conversation.

Meanwhile, singers and dancers from Marlborough Academy of Dance and Drama brought a lighter, more Disneyfied version to proceedings, with dozens of younger children as white rabbits proving particularly appealing.

The Priory Gardens was packed with families enjoying the spectacle in glorious sunshine.
