Mad Hats and Moustaches

The Alice in Wonderland countdown begins! 
The Royal Premiere(oooo) is happening right this instant, even as I type, with Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter et al tripping down the red carpet to the odeon in  London's Leicester Square.
Harumph, my invite must have got lost in the post.
Invite or not, I was fairly tempted to head down there and brighten up this grim and miserable day with some celeb spotting, maybe hand out some Golden Afternoon Tea Company cupcakes, but even a teamaid has her limits and you would have to be mad as a hatter to stand for hours in this hideous rain!

But in just a few weeks time we get to be part of a real live Mad Hatter's Tea Party. Yes you read that right, Lina and I will be creating a scene fit for Alice at the Mad Hatter's Tea Party-  Mad Hats and Moustaches.

Taking place on the 20th of March at Jamm in Brixton,we are delighted to be part of this club night that promises to be a tiptop night out. 
As well as fantabulous bands and entertaining comedians, there will be  actors dressed up as characters from the book and the Golden Afternoon Tea Company will be creating and serving 'eat me' cupcakes and the Queen of Heart's Jam tarts along with cups of Earl Grey tea-tinis to sip. 
The Mad Hatter himself will be entertaining the guests at our specially created tea party table.

 And the best thing of all about the evening is that it all goes towards raising money for the Prostrate Cancer Charity as part of prostrate cancer awareness month. 
The charity raises money for research into the causes, prevention and treatment of prostate cancer.
So you get to eat cake, drink tea-tinis, dance, wear silly hats and raise money for a fantastic cause, get your ticket from Mad Hats and Moustaches- a mere £7.
Do come along!

Next week, we shall be having a week of Alice inspired posts(so much to choose from) to get us in the mood for the film's release on March 6th.
Oh.. we heart Helena, despite what they say she can do no wrong in my eyes! 
Here she is with that clever Tim Burton earlier at the premiere.

Have a peek at this clip from BBC news, interviews from the red carpet with Johnny Depp, Helena and Anne Hathaway who reveals she based the White Queen on Nigella Lawson!

Oh ok- here's Johnny.... now that's what I call yummy. Where's the spoon...
