  • Everyday to 18 April
  • Free with standard admission, £1 charge for Alice in Blunderland play

Don’t be late to your very important date in Eureka! Land this Easter. Step into the wondrous world of Lewis Carroll this spring when Eureka! performs its own topsy-turvy play Alice in Blunderland. Look out for croquet, museum trails, mad hatter science shows and the chance to be a hatter and make your own very mad hat.

The short interactive play Alice in Blunderland will be performed on weekdays where you can help Alice to keep her head and maybe even see more than just the Cheshire Cat’s smile. Between performances Alice, the Rabbit and the Cheshire Cat will meet and greet families in the galleries. On weekends you can experience a Mad Hatter Science Show and those of you with a flair for the flamboyant can make your own ‘Mad Hatter’ hat.

Every day you can have a go at croquet and take a playing-card trail leading through the museum with the opportunity to win a copy of the Alice in Wonderland novel at the end. Children under the age of five can feel what it’s like to shrink like Alice as they walk into the mystical Sound Garden with flowers and honey combs as big as a grown-up. The Alice in Eureka! Land event celebrates Lewis Carroll’s classic children’s novel Alice in Wonderland with a series of wondrous events and activities from 27 March to 18 April.
