Alice – The Grand Unveiling

Hotham Park Heritage Trust (HPHT), currently a registered charity, is in the process of being closed with the intention of becoming a charitable organisation to be known as Friends of Hotham Park (FoHP).

All events listed on this website have always been organised and run entirely by a small group of unpaid Trustees, Members and Volunteers of Hotham Park Heritage Trust. In the Autumn of 2019 the decision was made to close the Trust because of a lack of people willing to volunteer their time.

The new charitable group, Friends of Hotham Park, hope to continue the legacy of HPHT by organising various activities in the future but they need your help. For more information please email or click here.

The following is an archive of an event organised and run by Hotham Park Heritage Trust in 2018.

Alice – The Grand Unveiling

Sunday 27 May 2018 from 2:15pm.

As a result of funds raised at the 2016 Country Fair we were able to pay for the wood carvings in The Mad Hatter’s Copse.  From the proceeds of the 2017 Country Fair we are very excited to announce the addition of more Alice in Wonderland sculptures, which were unveiled on Sunday 27 May 2018 – details as shown on the poster below.  The unveiling day was enhanced by the  Suzanne Hill School of Dance performing song and dance routines to entertain the crowd, followed by sculptor, Simon Groves, providing a live demonstration of an owl being carved from a length of tree trunk. Hotham Park Heritage Trust were then thrilled to round the day off with the Bard and the Troubadour performing their Alice in Wonderland Theatre production, which was the first live performance of a play in the Park. Children, and adults alike, found this all very engaging.
