Mad Hatter’s Tea Party

As part of the All Along the Riverbank event, Gift to Nature will be holding a Mad Hatters Tea Party at the Sandown Community Orchard on Monday 7th May from midday.

Meet Wonderland characters as they enjoy their tea party and why not bring your own picnic to enjoy alongside them. Hide from the Queen of Hearts, follow the White rabbit or hunt for water creatures.

Friendly rangers will also be on hand to guide you in some pond dipping sessions as well as storytellers and face painters and resident wandering minstrel.

A fun event for all family. Fancy dress optional, but encouraged! Eat me and Drink me refreshments available plus plant sales from the Gift to Nature Shop.

The site is right on The Red Squirrel Trail (NCN 23) at Longwood Lane. You can walk into the site from the cycle track (through the carved arch) or from Longwood Lane. Informal parking is possible on the verge opposite the site, please take care not to obstruct the road or any site entrances.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
