The Absolutely Bonkers Alice In Wonderland Lantern Festival

By Lottie Hulme |
4th December 2018

We all love Christmas lights don’t we? Whether it’s a smattering of fairy lights here and there, to full blown light displays in cul de sacs. Whichever display lights up your life, there’s no denying they’re awesome. Which is why we think you’re going to love this one…

This winter, you can fall down the rabbit hole at a lantern display based around Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, for six weeks only! There’ll be full blown lantern replicas of the famed Wonderland characters, including the Mad Hatter, Cheshire Cat, White Rabbit, playing cards and, larger than life, Alice herself.

Not short of stuff to do, there’ll be 29 interactive scenes in total alongside 16o giant lanterns to retell the classic. You’ll wander across a giant chess board, sashay through the looking glass and take part in a whole hoo-ha of immersive events, carefully twirling around lanterns up to six metres high and 16 metres wide! Set in the winter wonderland that is Southwark Park, the festival makes for marvellous photo opportunities.

To keep you warm whilst you wander, there’ll be steaming cups of mulled wine and food and drink galore, making this display definitely one for the family! There’ll also be the opportunity to see Father Christmas at the end – have you been naughty or nice? I guess we’ll find out won’t we…

The Alice in Wonderland lantern festival will run until the 5th of January 2019 at Southwark Park, Paradise Gate entrance, Jamaica Road.
