GUILDFORD FIREWORKS Please note, there may be increased congestion and demand for parking in the town centre this evening from around 5pm due to the Guildford Fireworks Display and Torchlight Procession. Please ensure you give yourself plenty of time to arrive for your scheduled performance as latecomers may not be admitted due to the promenade style of this production.

"I took my grandchildren to the production a few years ago. They absolutely loved it. When I told them you were doing it again, I was so pleased when they said they would love to go again...because I wanted to go again. During the performance my grandson turned to me and said, “This is good, isn’t it?” Audience Member
2018 marks 150 years since Charles Dodgson (aka Lewis Carroll) moved his family to Guildford. To celebrate this anniversary, we're very excited to be re-staging our 2015 sell-out, multi-venue adaptation, where you'll join Alice on her curious adventures in Wonderland.
For this immersive production you will be starting in the church where Carroll preached: St Mary’s…but that is only the beginning! From there you will follow Alice and the White Rabbit on a magical journey through Wonderland. Experience Guildford Museum as you’ve never seen it before and just be careful you don’t lose your head in the Castle Keep…who knows, by the end maybe you too may believe in “as many as six impossible things before breakfast”, just like Alice!
NEW FOR 2018! Lose yourself in the Pool of Tears, discover Lewis Carroll's letters and writing desk, the Mouse's Tale and enjoy a Dodo Dacquiri at the Mock Turtle Bay Bar...and amongst our returning cast we've got a host of fabulous new faces for you to meet! Watch the 2015 Trailer.
