Alice In Wonderland At The V&A
Fan of Alice in Wonderland?
Well, this ought to have you grinning like… well, you know.
You see, next year is exactly 150 years since Charles Lutwidge Dodgson – better known as Lewis Carroll – first published his long cherished children’s book, and the V&A are hosting a huge, ‘immersive, theatrical’ exhibition to celebrate.
It promises to take its audience on a ‘mind-bending journey down the rabbit hole’, with over 350 exhibits to see.
You’ll meet all of your favourite characters: Alice herself; The Queen Of Hearts; The Mad Hatter; The Cheshire Cat; Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum; and more; all of whom will be brought to life through big-budget, theatrical staging.
Of course, Alice In Wonderland wasn’t just a children’s book, it also had a long-lasting cultural impact on everything from fashion to cinema, art, and music; all of which you’ll experience first hand at the exhibition.
You’ll get to track the evolution of film and special effects as you watch Alice herself transform over centuries, beginning with John Tenniel’s original illustrations for the Walt Disney movie in 1951, and including sketches from Salvador Dali, illustrations from Ralph Steadman, and more recent images from Tim Burton’s feature film.
You don’t want to miss this one.
NOTE: Alice In Wonderland at the V&A will open on the 27th of June 2020 and run until the 10th of January 2021. Tickets aren’t on sale yet, but you can keep an eye out for when they do on the V&A’s website here.
