Alice in Winterland

‘Alice in Winterland’ is a unique family lantern experience that tells the stories of Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass. Taking place in the northern section of Southwark Park, ‘Alice in Winterland’ is a walk-through event designed to be interactive using slides, water effects and other low level audio visual effects to explore the lanterns. There will be food and beverage traders, entertainers on the bandstand, special effects and a small community stage for local school and musician performances.
