Imagine a world where nothing is impossible.
Wonderland is the first ever large-scale immersive exhibition celebrating the timeless stories of Lewis Carroll.
The exhibition reveals the power of storytelling and the moving image, exploring Alice’s adventures across time, cultures and media. Audiences engage with Alice interactively through the evolution of special effects; from pre-cinema and silent films, to animation, puppetry, live action and CGI.
Perfect for families and fans, students, art and film lovers alike, Wonderland invites visitors down the rabbit hole on a journey like no other. The more curious you are, the more you’ll discover.
