150 Years of Wonder


2015 is the year that Lewis Carroll’s much loved children’s story, Alice in Wonderland, celebrates its 150th anniversary… So much inspiration has been drawn from the story over the years that it’s not just an occasion to celebrate the literature itself but also the style and frivolity that it’s created when planning an event. From […]
