Mad Hatter Day Tea Party

October 6, 2019, 10:30 am - 1:30 pm EDT

$30 per person
Limited to 50 people 

‘Have some wine….’ The March Hare said in an encouraging tone.

Alice looked all round the table, but there was nothing on it but tea. `I don’t see any wine,’ she remarked.
`There isn’t any,’ said the March Hare.

Eat what you see! So many tea things! There will be more than tea at this celebration of inspiration and creativi-Tea in honor of Mad Hatter Day (10/6, which in the US is October 6). Come in Wonderland-inspired attire! Socialize with LCSNA members and friends! Share some images in our Pictures & Conversations Slideshow! Along with short presentations by April plus Madison, the Sherlockian Carrollians, and Ellie Schaefer-Salins!

How to Share Images

Do you have some favorite quotes or images of Lewis Carroll, Alice, or characters from his books? Do you have pictures of absolutely frabjous collectibles? Or collections? Or perhaps you’ve created (or just run across) some Wonderland-inspired visual art or poetry? What sends you down the rabbit-hole? Send us what you’ve got, and we will share it on the big screen in the Orrery Pavilion during our Mad Hatter Day Tea Party!

Pictures should ideally be sent as PowerPoint slides at 1280 by 720 pixels, but if not, send them in any format and we’ll make them work. The slide show will be looped, but can be paused should you wish to talk about something. Send as many as you like! Email them by September 30 to Mark Burstein (, or via Dropbox, WeTransfer, etc.
