A Crafty Vintage Weekender, set for this weekend at Hoghton Tower, September 26 and 27, will include special appearances from characters from Alice in Wonderland, to mark the book’s 150th anniversary.
There will be an array of family attractions such as crafts, food, face painting and magic shows, as well as a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, attended by Alice, the Queen of Hearts and of course, the Mad Hatter himself.
“It’s a real family event, with something for everyone, from the foodie and the craft-lover to the children and those people who just want to come along and soak up the atmosphere”Crafty Vintage event director Dan Johnson
More than simply tea and cakes, the fun-filled tea party will involve singing and dancing, games and story-time, enough to captivate the whole family.
Situated in a themed marquee, within the gardens of Hoghton Tower, this is a party not to be missed.
The weekend will also welcome back an eclectic mix of more than 50 of Crafty Vintage’s regular and popular designers, craftspeople and artisans offering their unique, vintage and retro wares.
In addition there will be homemade delicacies from around the globe, a cocktail bar, children’s fun and music.
Crafty Vintage event director Dan Johnson said: “We’re thrilled to be hosting yet another event at Hoghton Tower. We always receive such a good reception there and it is the perfect setting for a Crafty Vintage event.
