This November, the rooms and gardens       of Talliston will be transformed into a   1920s-style dark cabaret venue set in a distinctly dark and dangerous version of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland.

From November until January, Talliston will play host to a series of Wonderland-inspired additions to its already fantastical rooms and gardens. Expect a Cabinet of Curiosities including playing cards and white rabbits, Kings & Queens, giant flowers, stars and moons… and more! Join your host, The White Rabbit himself, as you are welcomed into this macabre fantasyland created by Talliston Décor & Design.

Saturday 10th November 2018

Every invite to our dark cabaret comes with a private ticket to the infamous Talliston Night Bar. Set in our Japanese teahouse conservatory, this intimate jazz lounge welcoming guests to a half-hour after-dark show. At its candlelit tables, it’s the perfect backdrop to showcase a selection of vintage music and songs.

Our Victorian Watchtower will play host to a cocktail bar unlike any other – where guests can sip unique Talliston cocktails created especially for the house, among a range of other Alice-inspired drinks. Savour the inky depths of the Bête Noir martini – or the thyme-and-raspberry Truth Tipple. Canapés will also be served throughout the evening.
