Commemorating one of the most popular children’s books ever written, Alice’s Day is back to take you on a journey to the topsy-turvy world of Wonderland. This curious world started on 4 July 1862, when Charles Dodgson took 10-year-old Alice Liddell and her sisters along the River Thames and amused them with the first story of Wonderland. Curiouser and curiouser Alice became. By 1864, the handwritten manuscript of Alice’s Adventures Under Ground was gifted to Alice — and can now be found in the British Library — whilst the following year saw the publication of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland under the pen name of Lewis Carroll; it was quickly followed by the sequel, Through the Looking-Glass, in 1871. Oxford introduced Alice’s Day with White Rabbit scavenger hunts and an unforgettable tea party, and this year is no exception.
