It’s been150 years of Lewis Carroll’s Alice In Wonderland, and to celebrate this incredible birthday The British Library hosted a free exhibition in April 2016 in their entrance hall gallery.

“When Alice Liddell beseeched Carroll for a tale, the story goes she loved it so much she asked him to write it down for her – he did, and that’s how one of the most famous children’s stories ever was born”

The British Library’s wonderful exhibition explores the continued fascination with each new generation of readers, and how both Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through The Looking Glass have both influenced the music and film industries.

To read more about it, head over to our first ever edition of Tales HERE.

If you want to look more in depth at the exhibition itself, there is information on the British Library website: www.bl.uk/events/alice-in-wonderland-exhibition .
