Tickets for next Wednesday evening’s Alice celebrations at the British Library are now sold out. Congratulations to our London-dwelling friends who managed to secure one. They will be enjoying readings by members of Tim Burton’s cast, conversations with the producer and co-producer of the movie, “an appreciation of Alice” by Will Self, and a viewing of a Cecil Hepworth’s 1903 “Alice In Wonderland” with live piano accompaniment. I wonder if there are ever scalpers outside British Library events? Bonus points and a special mention on this blog to anyone who procures last minute admission through irregular means.
For those who fail to locate either a scalper or an untended fire escape, there is still the opportunity to view a special exhibition of “Alice’s Adventures Under Ground” and related pieces from the Library’s collection during regular library opening hours.
Furthermore, tickets are still available for an illustrated talk on March 6 entitled “Lewis Carroll and Photography: Exposing the Truth” in which Carroll scholar Edward Wakeling “examines the impressive reality of Carroll’s photography, including his studies of children, and tackles the myths surrounding his work.” Book now to avoid disappointment!
