Youngsters can head down the rabbit hole with Alice at a free Christmas party in Heston next Saturday (December 12).

An Alice in Wonderland drama workshop is part of the Big Local Christmas Event at Brabazon Community Centre, 106 Brabazon Road, Heston.

There will be party food at the centre from 5pm-8pm, and carollers will be out and about spreading festive goodwill.

The drama workshop itself is for children aged seven and above, and will run from 5pm-7pm.

Parents can reserve a place for their child by calling Taz Virdee on 0770 2532 710 or by emailing

The Christmas party is the latest in a busy programme of free activities organised using £1 million of Big Local Lottery cash awarded to the area .

Cookery lessons, sewing groups and sports sessions are among the weekly events laid on by the Heston West Community Partnership (HWCP), which also held a big Diwali celebration last month.
