Mad Hatters Tea Party
On Easter Sunday 16 April, from 1 pm to 5 pm in Deerpark, all is not quite what it seems as a white rabbit, a mad Hatter and a little girl called Alice host a most unusual tea party Mad Hatters Tea Party in Dublin complete with lots of kids activities, a tea cup ride, giant chess, croquet, a hat walk, balloons, an Easter egg Hunt and a host of surprises on picnic tables under a tree!
The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party is one of the most famous scenes from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. To celebrate Easter and the full bloom of spring, DLR Events invite young and old to put on their maddest hat and come to the Mad Hatters Tea Party.
Characters in costume from that famous scene in Alice in Wonderland such as the White Rabbit, Alice, and the Mad Hatter himself will be there to greet ‘guests’ to their very special tea party on long wooden tables with pretty red and white check table cloths under a tree! Take a ride in a teacup or be a pawn in a giant chess game, have a game of croquet or hear the story of Alice in Wonderland from a special storyteller and with ‘Make & Do’ for the little ones.
The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, hosted by DLR Events, is an initiative by Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council and will feature make and do for the younger children to make a mad hat. Guests will be encouraged to dress up as one of the Alice in Wonderland characters, and wear the maddest hat possible.
Throughout the day there will be opportunities to show off hats and costumes on the purpose built “Hat walk” – strut your stuff to the sounds of the DLR Events DJ!
Bring a picnic or buy some tea and cakes from the tuck shop and dine at the picnic tables.
This year the Mad Hatters Tea Party falls on Easter Sunday so a highlight will be the new Easter Egg Hunt. Follow the signs around the park, collect the code words from the back of the signs, get them all right and collect an Easter treat
The Mad Hatters Tea Party is a celebration for all the family of all things Easter so join us this Easter Sunday!
