Fancy that...Mad Hatter’s back in town!

The Mad Hatter himself made a surprise visit to Todmorden on Sunday for the re-launch of his name-sake business Mad Hatter Fancy Dress!

The weather stayed fine all day which meant, in addition to pizzas supplied by Franco’s Pizzeria and a magic show by Dotty, children were able to enjoy a bounce on Mad Hatter’s Bouncy Castle before exploring the fancy dress collection and taking a party bag home.

“We are so pleased that so many people came to the launch. Mad Hatter Fancy Dress is well known in the town but the costumes have been in storage and mostly inaccessible for a few years. Now they are available for hire again,” said Paul Cheesbrough who runs the business with his wife, Katrina.

The collection is housed in Unit Seven, Lineholme Mill, Lydgate, Todmorden (behind Franco’s Pizzeria) and is open Monday evenings 6pm to 9pm or at other times by appointment. Call 01706 810788 or check the website
