‘Where is Alice?’ The Mad Hatter and White Rabbit are both on the lookout for their friend Alice. They’re certain they saw her a moment ago – will the children of Yarra help them find her?

‘Mad Hatter’s Tea Party’: You can’t have a Wonderland gathering without tea! Luckily, the Mad Hatter has managed to bring along his favourite tea set and a whole table to go along with it. Laugh along as the Wonderland characters tell their favourite jokes and whisk away the table when it’s time to ‘change places!’

Balloon figures: Tweedledee has found a bag of delightfully twisty rubbery things. Expect lots of clowning around while he figures out how to shape them into the most interesting of creatures...

Games: while children wait their turn for a balloon, they’re invited for a game of ‘Cup, cup, moose’ or ‘Tip the dormouse’.
