Alice's Curious Tea Parties: Memories
To celebrate the opening of Scottish Ballet’s production of Alice, we held afternoon tea parties in Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow. Over 140 ladies and gentlemen took part, and as photography and coming of age are the main themes in Alice, we invited participants to bring along a picture of themselves and a quote expressing the wisdom we wished we had all had as young people. Have a look at their words of wisdom below.
