DINING with ALICE was a magical, if topsy-turvy, dinner party in
the exquisite gardens of a 15th century moated manor house in
The audience of 256 unsuspecting diners were invited to follow in Alice's footsteps and find themselves in Wonderland in the company of the White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter, and even Alice herself in all her various sizes.
All was not what it seemed as a strange evening of tongue-twisters and riddles unfolded, culminating in a musical entertainment under the stars.
Curiouser and curiouser, don't you think?
