Returned from a little trip away to find the news that that Lyndhurst, Hants, is having an Alice overload for the rest of the year. Lyndhurst is the rather nice Hampshire town where Alice Liddell and her Reggie lived out their days as country gent and lady. It's right in the New Forest, the largest original hunting forest left in Britain - pines, heath, sand, and wild ponies.

The Alice stuff begins at 6 pm on Friday 15 May at the New Forest Centre when Alice and some of her friends arrive in a pony and trap.

Don't think I'll be going, not least since I was never keen on the sound of Alice Liddell as a grown up lady. But it sounds as if it's going to be quite a big thing, and it will culminate in December with carol singing and Santa.

Strangely enough, it doesn't seem to have a website, but perhaps googling will throw one up.
