Mad Hatter’s Afternoon Tea Party

Back to Events

Every adventure requires a first step at this Mad Hatter’s Tea Party…

Fall down the rabbit hole of surprises at Rockliffe Hall and find yourselves guests at a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party hosted by Alice, the Queen of Hearts and of course the Mad Hatter himself. This crazy event will be followed by activities, play and games full of adventure and fun for little ones in our new Mischmasch playground. This event is being held in support of JPC Community Farm

"Would you like an adventure now or shall we have our tea first?"
Afternoon Tea will be served in the Rockliffe Suite. Enjoy small and large, sweet and savoury delicious treats but most importantly don’t be late! 

Strange happenings are also afoot - will you be the one to find the sleeping dormouse or discover who has stolen the Queen’s jam tarts? 

"Which way I ought to go from here? …it doesn’t matter which way you go…"
As you explore far into the enchanted woods, it all becomes curiouser and curiouser, wander between the curious cabins enjoying soft play, Alice in Wonderland themed crafts, face painting, the adventure playground and dodging the jets of the colourful water feature. 

Watch you don’t bump into the white rabbit running past! 

"Off with their heads…"
Other activities to enjoy around the resort are of course game of croquet (with a flamingo as a mallet perhaps...), giant lawn games, driving mini Mercedes cars and traditional board games.   

"Twinkle twinkle little bat, how I wonder where you’re at…"
The Rockliffe Hall resort is filled with nature which you can learn all about in our interactive nature pod. Have a wander around the resort including the bird hide to see what you can spot!
