Family fun for all is on the agenda in Blyth as a free Mad Hatter’s Tea Party takes place.

The event, on Saturday, March 31, will take place from 11am to 3pm in Ridley Park, and will feature an Easter egg hunt, an Easter bonnet parade, a decorated egg competition, children’s rides and arts and crafts workshops.

In addition, colourful characters from Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland and Through The Looking Glass will entertain and interact with the children and families attending the free event.

The Blyth Town Council event is supported by Mister Ridley’s Vintage Parlour, Asda, Carnival Rides and Active Northumberland. It will also help to raise funds for Blyth Rotary Club and the RNLI.

Coun Kath Nisbet is looking forward to the tea party.

She said: “This is a great way to spend part of the Easter weekend.

“We encourage every to come down to Ridley Park and enjoy some good, old fashioned, family fun.”

Blyth Town Council’s Mayor John Potts added: “Easter is a great family festival and what better place to hold a party than Ridley Park? We have a well deserved reputation for hosting free family orientated events.”
