Chloe Taylor (11) joins The Mad Hatter as he prepares to host a tea party in 'Storm in a Teacup' for Mad Hatter's Day on Sunday 6th October.
From 2-5pm the coffee shop and cafe at Stormont will welcome children to make and decorate their own hats while enjoying warm milk, cookies and cakes.
Mad Hatter Day celebrates the Mad Hatter, from Alice In Wonderful. The original picture of the Mad Hatter by John Tenniel in Alice's Adventures In Wonderland (more commonly known as Alice In Wonderland, by Lewis Caroll) always depicts him wearing a hat, bearing the note “In This Style 10/6″. Although we know this is really an order from the time the picture was drawn to mean a hat in that style cost 10 Shillings and Six pence, we take this as inspiration to act in the style of the Mad Hatter on 10/6 (In the UK this would point to the tenth of June, but as the day was founded in America it is the 6th of October.
Admission is free. For more information please telephone 028 9076 0067.
