Alice is off on her adventures again, this time through her mirror into the whimsical Looking-Glass Land where words are backwards, time flies and eggs can talk!

Join an ensemble of Britten Sinfonia players on an interactive musical journey for the whole family. But don’t just listen, help us tell the story. Create a mysterious soundscape for the terrifying Jabberwock, compete in a royal bowing competition to welcome the Red Queen, help Humpty Dumpty out of a tricky situation, try a spot of conducting and join us in a sing-along to celebrate Alice’s fantastical adventures.

Presenter, Jessie Maryon-Davies will guide audiences through this magical interactive concert featuring music by Beethoven, Ravel, Satie, Tchaikovsky, Bartok and Ligeti.
