Stage and screen legend Robert Powell is set to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the publication of Alice in Wonderland in a fantastic night of spoken word and music.

Wonderland presented by Clive Conway Productions will be performed at The Old Courthouse, Antrim on Saturday, May 21 at 7.30pm.

In 2015, to mark the 150th anniversary of the publication of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, 13 of the world’s leading composers were commissioned to create a special piece of music based on each of the 12 chapters and the preface of this most loved children’s book. Performed in order, the narrative will be performed through music with violinist Matthew Trussler and pianist Ashley Wass and also through words, spoken by renowned television and film actor Robert Powell.

Appealing to all age groups, Wonderland is a reflection of the enduring popularity of this wonderful book.

Robert Powell is one of Britain’s most well-known actors. He has been seen in a host of classic film and television dramas, including The 39 Steps, Jesus of Nazareth, The Detectives and most recently Holby City.

This will be a unique and memorable evening and early booking is advised.

Tickets for this event are priced at £20 & £18 (Concession) and are available from the Box Office on 9446 3113 or at www.antrimandnewtownabbey.gov.uk/boxoffice
