Barnoldswick is set to transform into a wonderland later this month at a free, family-friendly event.

An Alice in Wonderland-themed even, which promises to be a “theatrical fantasy event” is coming to the town on Saturday, March 23.

Alice and the Queen of Hearts return to the town together with the Cheshire Cat and Mad Hatter. The Lewis Carroll characters will recreate a fantasy world in the market town during a day of theatre, performance and dance.

Children will take elocution lessons with Alice at her tea-party, dance with the Mad Hatter, play croquet with the Queen of Hearts and listen to the Cheshire Cat's stories.

Families can also follow the White Rabbit trail with a chance for children to be rewarded with a Humpty-Dumpty Easter egg when they complete the challenge.

Wonderland is the third and final event of a trio of winter events staged by Barnoldswick Town Council which is part-funded by the Government's UK Shared prosperity fund.

The Wizarding World Ice Trail in January and February's Arts and Crafts Festival attracted thousands of visitors to the town.

Barnoldswick's Wonderland adventure gets underway from 9am with Makers' Market. Entertainment from Barnoldswick Brass Band begins during the morning and activities last until late afternoon.

Town council organisers said: "It is an event not to be missed. Don't be late!’
