Mad Hatter Tea Party at the Regent Arcade

Mad Hatter Tea Party at the Regent Arcade

Posted on: May 18, 2016

Don’t be late for this very important date.

To celebrate the release of the new blockbuster movie Alice through the Looking Glass, the Regent Arcade shopping centre is inviting you to meet the Mad Hatter, in a fundraising event for Hop, Skip and Jump in Seven Springs Cheltenham on Saturday the 28th of May.

Inspired by Johnny Depp’s version, the Mad Hatter will be available for selfies and a meet and greet on the central ground floor mall, near the Body Shop from 11am – 1pm and 2pm-4pm.

Shoppers can indulge in Alice in Wonderland inspired cupcakes with prices starting from £1 or families can bring the kids along to get made up by Cheltenham Face Painting with a suggested donation of £1 per child. 100% of proceeds will go to Hop, Skip and Jump.

Said Scott Lahive, centre manager of the Regent Arcade Shopping Centre: “Everyone’s looking forward to Tim Burton’s highly anticipated sequel to Alice in Wonderland and who better to kick things off than the Mad Hatter himself? We’re looking forward to him coming to town especially as it’s for such a great cause.

Hop, Skip and Jump do a fantastic job providing a variety of indoor and outdoor activities to engage and inspire children with disabilities and special educational needs. They also provide parents and carers with some much needed respite: time to rest; spend time with their other children; or simply go for a coffee with friends.”

The Regent Arcade are hoping to raise at least £1000 for the charity so be sure to join them in the madness where fancy dress will be welcomed.
