Alice's Mad Boat Party


  • The Queen Elizabeth Boat
  • Sat 14 Jul - Sun 15 Jul
  • Presented by SAVVY Theatre Company

Come and experience Alice In Wonderland on a boat sailing up the River Thames. Watch the story unfold and get involved with interactive games. And keep an eye on the riverbank, as different characters will be joining us along the way! This three-hour experience will culminate in an actual tea party with the Mad Hatter. 

SAVVY is a multi award-winning company, creating innovative productions, where everyone is welcomed and involved regardless of their ability or disability, advantage or disadvantage. They have a strong reputation for developing uniquely interactive, site-specific work and in 2017 won the National Creative and Cultural Skill Award. This production is being led by SAVVY Theatre’s Young Company, with professional support from the core team.

Tickets are strictly limited and as their 2015 production sold out, early booking is advised.
