July 2014 Oxford Celebrates Alice's Day

On 4th July 1862 whilst on a picnic Rev. Charles Dodgson, an Oxford mathematics don, entertained young Alice Liddell,  and her sisters, daughters of the Dean of his college Christ Church, with his tales about a little girl who finds herself in Wonderland.  Alice enjoyed the tale and Dodgson wrote it down for her.  In 1865 the book “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” was published under Dodgson’s pen name, Lewis Carroll. Generations of children (and adults too!) love the story and it is famous all over the world.

On Saturday 5th July 2014 “Alice’s Day” will be celebrated in Oxford.  Visit the fabulous Story Museum in Oxford and take a look at the full programme of events at www.storymuseum.org.uk.

Antiques on High has created a special window based on Alice.  Creatures and characters from this fantastic tale and Through the Looking Glass make up this month's window which shows objects, books and  prints.  Naturally there are plenty of antiques in store which are perfect for tea parties, there’s a looking glass or two and we hope that the tempter display will make visitors curiouser and curiouser about what is within Oxford’s Antique and Craft Centre!
