Alice in Asia – video competition

Alice in Asia

One sunny day, Alice follows a White Rabbit down a rabbit hole and into a Wonderland full of strange creatures, where nothing is quite as it seems! Alice has some wonderful adventures with the Mad Hatter, the March Hare and the Cheshire Cat. Here at Macmillan we are remembering these adventures and more, as we celebrate 150 years since Macmillan originally published Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and we want you to join the celebration by having your own tea party.

This competition is open to primary schools in Asia and welcomes English language teachers to record their class performing The tea party scene. You can find everything you need here to get you and your class inspired by Alice’s adventures and fully prepared for the performance.
