Notices of the Alice in Wonderland exhibition on the wall and along a corridor

Exhibition of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ original illustrations

The new exhibition in Colyer-Fergusson Gallery celebrates the bicentenary of the birth of Sir John Tenniel, cartoonist and illustrator of the first publication of Lewis Carroll’s ‘Alice in Wonderland.’

The display, which is open until Friday 28 February, presents a series of images which brought so vividly to life many of the characters in Carroll’s classic tale – Alice, the Hatter, the White Rabbit, the Mock Turtle – as the Music department prepares to perform a nineteenth-century ‘Musical Dream Play’ adaptation of the novel, first performed in 1886 and overseen by the author himself.

The exhibition is free to attend and open during normal working hours, with disabled access. Come and take a walk through pages of the novel and step into Alice’s world…
