I had an Unbirthday on 14 May. My real birthday is 14 January, and unfortunately a relative had just died at that time (not to mention a whole lot of other horrible stuff) so I didn't feel like celebrating it.

I scheduled an Unbirthday 4 months later, and it was a lot of fun. One of my presents was this cool and unusual version of Alice, in a photo puppet theatre version. It is sold at Pollocks Toy Theatres one of the most fascinating museum shops in London, in Whitfield St, Fitzrovia. Dear Pollocks is in some ways almost unchanged since the Victorian era, and it's been a favourite of mine for many years - in fact, I'm hoping to do an event with them soon. I am certain that Lewis Carroll would have felt entirely at home there.
