Alice in Stony Wonderland

My, how time flies – it’s Stony Live! again.

Ten days of music, art, walks, talks, poetry, storytelling, family events and some more music gets off to a flying start this Saturday.

Among the first day attractions will be the traditional arts workshop for families at York House.

Once again, you’ll find Jonny Boatfield at the helm, and he needs your help t o make creatures and costumes, this year influenced by George & the Dragon – think knights and castles and Princesses and you’ll be spot on.

The workshop runs between 10am and 4pm and it’s free to participate.

> On the same day, and at the same centre, Captain Hume’s Poeticall Musicke: Madness or Mirth? will be operational.

Obscure and mad Jacobean songs and music from the 17th century – a melting pot of an era both historically and musically. Show time is 7.30pm.

>On Wednesday, the festival celebrates the 150 year anniversary of Alice’s visit to Wonderland, with a look at how people have envisaged Carroll’s characters in books, art, film and other settings.

Entry is free, doors from 7pm.
