Star for a Day: Matilda Itinerary

Hotel Direct is currently running a fantastic competition where bloggers have the opportunity to win a brilliant day in London by planning the perfect time out for a current West End character. As an avid reader with somewhat of a sweet tooth, the logical character for me was... Roald Dahl's Matilda!

The day out I have planned for her includes a macaroon making class (day time activity), Mad Hatter's Afternoon Tea (pre-show activity), a visit to Matilda the Musical, and finally a trip into wonderland at Alice's Adventure's Underground (post-show activity).

About the itinerary:

Matilda is a sweet little girl, but her parents have mistreated her since the day she was born. So when she meets the lovely Miss Honey at her new school, the young teacher immediately wants to do something nice for her amazingly clever student; she plans a fun Saturday out for the two of them in London!

They start out with a macaroon making class at L'Atelier des Chefs in the morning, which suits both their sweet tooths and is a great way of bonding as they work together to create the beautiful colourful treats.

Having worked up an appetite but wanting to save their scrumptious creations until Monday, to share with the rest of the class, the two head for the Mad Hatter's Afternoon Tea at Sanderson London, because Miss Honey knows that Alice in Wonderland is Matilda's very favourite novel (she has read it at least 17 times).

After they have filled their tummies with tea and cake, the two head off to the matinee performance of Matilda the Musical at the Cambridge Theatre to watch all their friends sing the amazingly clever songs by Tim Minchin and cheer when they defeat the evil Miss Trunchbull. 

They finish their wonderful day by a tumble into the fantastical Alice's Adventures Underground. It's located in the vaults underneath Waterloo Station, and after the Mad Hatter's Afternoon Tea it is the perfect bookish ending to their magical day in London.
