Alice in Wonderland and her Lost Boys - From Oxford and the Rabbit Hole to the Somme and Beyond - Marietta Crichton-Stewart
14 Sep
This is the story of Alice Liddell, who, as a little girl (pictured), had been the inspiration for Lewis Carroll's story 'Alice's Adventures Underground'. With royal romance, a society marriage, and the loss of two sons in the Great War, Alice led an eventful life in an rapidly changing world. Also, during the talk, Marietta reveals some unexpected connections both with Kent and with her own family!

Marietta has long been passionate about history, studying it at university. She has made many trips to Gallipoli and the Western Front. These trips often related to researching a proposed biography of her grandfather who was killed at the Battle of Loos. She also leads guided walks and gives talks on the Great War, her family's history, and Victorian architecture.
