Chatterbooks Chatterday 2015

On Saturday 27th June, the annual Chatterbooks Chatterday took place in the beautiful setting of RHS Garden Wisley.

Children from Surrey's Chatterbooks groups gathered with their families for a morning of fun, celebrating the 150th anniversary of the publication of Alice in Wonderland.  There were lots of Alice-themed activities to try. 

Children could make Mad Hatter hats:

create playing card characters:
make White Rabbit bookmarks:


and have fun with backwards clocks:

There were some amazing fancy dress costumes on show:
And, as always, the Chatterday Quiz was an extremely close contest, eventually won by the Mad Hatters following a tie-break question.
Families were then able to spend a gloriously sunny afternoon looking around the garden, and following the Wisley Alice in Wonderland trail.
We would like to say a big thank-you to RHS Garden Wisley for providing this year's beautiful venue for the Chatterday.
