The beautiful new building celebrates Daresbury’s world famous villager, the creator of Alice and all her adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. It also tells you a bit about his many interests and how his Daresbury childhood influenced the man he became. Audio programs include readings from Lewis Carroll’s works by the famous performers Ken Dodd and Dillie Keane.
