Excited crowds gathered in Ayscoughfee Gardens in Spalding in 2004 for a performance of Alice in Wonderland.

The live theatre production by Charter House Theatre Group, organised by South Holland District Council, was watched by more than 250 people who also enjoyed a picnic before the evening performance.

Leisure and tourism facilities manager Chris Cook said it was the first full family event of its kind organised by the council in the historic setting of the house and garden.
