Curiouser and Curiouser

July 6 @ 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm

Join performer Tempest Wisdom on a family-friendly journey down the rabbit hole. Packed with Lewis Carroll’s well-loved and whimsical writings and inspired by Ripon Cathedral’s nooks and crannies.

He thought he saw a Banker’s Clerk
Descending from the bus:
He looked again, and found it was
A Hippopotamus.
‘If this should stay to dine,’ he said,
‘There won’t be much for us!’
— Lewis Carroll, A Strange Wild Song

A strange wild song indeed! An imaginative journey which combines Carroll’s iconic style and the fascinating history of the cathedral with the classic caprice of the Cheshire Cat.

FREE EVENT – just turn up

Age guide 5+

This show is also performed at 11am in the Cathedral and repeated at The Little Ripon Bookshop at 2.30pm
