Alice’s Wonderland Weekend


It’s hard to believe that it’s 150 years since Lewis Carroll penned the first tale for, and about, young Alice. Her adventures have been captivating young and old alike since then.

When The Parade Shopping Centre were planning their ‘summer extravaganza’ and thinking of a theme, the fact that 2016 is a milestone in the Alice story seemed the perfect reason to plan their celebrations around it, not least because of the enduring popularity of the story and the characters throughout all generations.

Just like in Wonderland, The Parade is home to an eclectic mix of retail outlets, trade and craftspeople who have all been involved in planning, what we hope you will agree is, a fun programme of events for you to enjoy.

From Face painting to tea-pot painting, flamingo croquet, tea-cup rides and the Mad Hatters Tea parties to competitions and a mobile zoo where anyone can handle the animals, The Parade hope that you will find the time to join them and spend an hour or two in the whimsical world that they have created for this one weekend!
