The event features interactive character performances, a full carnival procession, immersive experiences, and many more exciting surprises along the way.

Kevin Chambers, Course Lead for the Events Management Course at AUB said: “This year there is something for everyone. We have extended the programme to include opportunities to indulge in a wellbeing experience, exciting theatre, dancing in a carnival parade or disappearing down the rabbit hole.”

The diverse programme includes live music, magic and bubble shows, face painting, craft events, interactive song and dance and the chance to meet the Alice in Spring performers.

The wellbeing elements include aromatherapy, boxercise, therapy dogs, Zumba, yoga meditation and much more.

Chief Operating Officer of Bournemouth Town Centre BID, Paul Kinvig, said: “Our visitor surveys show this is exactly the kind of thing people want to see. Alice in Spring last year was a great attraction, imaginative, entertaining, and hugely popular.”

He added: “This themed two-day event will transform the town into an immersive, interactive wonderland for all ages.”

Alice in Spring is on from 11am to 4pm on Saturday and Sunday.
