Families in fancy dress took a trip down the rabbit hole at the Mad Hatter’s tea party in Valentines Mansion.

Hundreds of people were greeted by Alice and the Giant Caterpillar, when they arrived at the mansion’s gardens, on Emerson Road, Ilford, on Sunday (April 15).

Guests enjoyed a picnic while children entertained the Queen of Hearts with a game of croquet and rode in tea cups to their heart’s content.

The children embraced the spirit of event by donning colourful clothing and face paint. 
Prizes were for grabs for the winners of a fancy dress parade, including a free ride at the funfair in nearby Melbourne field.

Lisa Haridas, from Valentines Mansion, said: “The sun was only out a little bit but the kids and parents made the most of it.

“It was a lovely family event.”

Money raised from the event is being put toward refurbishing one of the rooms in the mansion.
