It was a wonderland on the Askew Road this Saturday with May Madness

20 May 2014

This Saturday the levels of madness on the Askew Road were raised to dizzying heights as a cast of characters flooded the streets for an amazing community event – May Madness!


There were circus stilt walkers & a cast of colourful Alice in Wonderland characters on Starch Green & the Askew Road on Saturday May 17!

The world of Alice in Wonderland came alive.

And everyone celebrated their very merry un-birthday.
