This event took place on Sunday 4th July 2021

Join illustrator Chris Riddell for a celebration of the classic book. This event is available to public library lovers and users through our partnership with the British Library.

Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There, appeared 150 years ago this year. Lewis Carroll’s fantastical book takes Alice off through the looking-glass on a second adventure, to a place even stranger than the Wonderland of her first.

Following on from his exquisite edition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, one of our finest illustrators, Chris Riddell, has now brought Through the Looking Glass – and more of Lewis Carroll’s iconic characters – to vibrant, colourful life.

Join Chris and our actors for a celebration of this masterpiece of nonsense, with readings and live illustration.

Suitable for those aged 8 and above.
