Join us in the Great Hall for a Mad Hatter's tea party with a festive twist. The tea includes a selection of sandwiches, cakes and tarts, all carefully crafted by our chefs to reflect our unique associations with Alice in Wonderland. The Hall will also be decorated for the season with a large Wonderland inspired Christmas tree as its focus- How many connections can you find?

Tea will be served at 15:00hrs with up to 30 guests and includes a talk on the author and his extraordinary stories. There is an optional Pre-tea Behind-the-Scenes Tour of Christ Church, which will include an explanation of the many Christ Church associations which inspired Lewis Carroll’s Alice stories.
