A Curious day in Liverpool

So, today is my birthday!!!! To help me celebrate a friend came to stay for the weekend!
Yesterday we headed into Liverpool..............
 to The Albert Dock.....................

 where something curious was happening..................

 at the TATE art gallery..........................

 ALICE IN WONDERLAND exhibition!!
It was an interesting exhibition! The theme was to show art INSPIRED by the Alice in Wonderland story.......I have to say some was interesting, some was strange and some was downright weird! Some I liked, some I loved and some I didn't like at all!! 
All in all though worth going to!

 I now have an Alice calendar for next year.......................

 and I added to my collection of Alice books.....I like to collect different illustrators.........the top one is illustrated by Mervyn Peake and the bottom one by Tove Jansson who is the author of the MOOMIN books!
 Picked up these postcards too......I really liked the Humpty Dumpty illustration by 
Peter Blake........
and although this by John Wesley is a little strange I kinda liked it!

After the Alice exhibition we went to the EMPIRE THEATRE to see STRICTLY GERSHWIN by the ENGLISH NATIONAL BALLET.......it was fabulous......I recommend it!
