Curiouser and curiouser

As Tim Burton unleashes his breathtaking 3D vision of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, and the BFI's restoration of the original 1903 adaptation is released, the British Library curates a night to cherish all things Alice, hosted by author Mark Salisbury. Alongside a comprehensive ongoing exhibition of rare Alice texts, the night featured readings from renowned British actors (and co-stars of the Burton adaptation) Sir Christopher Lee and Michael Sheen, and producer Richard Zanuck discussing exactly why Tim Burton was the perfect director for the project. With author Will Self making his own unique tribute to Alice's influence on his texts, the enduring appeal of the story is analysed and the magic of Wonderland is celebrated in this extraordinary event.
