As the Mad Hatter rightly put it, “We’re all quite mad here. You’ll fit right in”!

For all you Alice in Wonderland fans, prepare to go mad as a hatter (in the best possible way) because you’re invited to an upcoming tea party here in Victoria!

On March 9th, non-profit organization, For the Love of Africa, is hosting a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party at Cordova Bay United Church from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.  

Jump down the rabbit hole and enjoy a lovely afternoon with tea and pastries, followed by a historical fashion show exhibiting outfits inspired by Victorian-era fashion.

All proceeds will support the funding of schools for children and youth, and sustainable development projects and infrastructure in communities in Tanzania, Africa.

The tea party runs until 4:30 p.m., and the fashion show will commence at 3:15 p.m.. Keep in mind that the tea party has reserved seats, while the fashion show has open seating.

There will be desserts and other snacks, a closed bid auction with prizes and of course, all the tea you can drink!

Guests are invited to dress up as wacky and “mad” as they can – there will be a prize for the wackiest hat!
