Mad Hatters Tea Party view photos

It was truly a sight for sore eyes! A stunning day in Edinburgh with temperatures soaring. Our Mad Hatters Tea Party kicked off with Hendricks cocktails poured from teapots on the Queen's Lawn at Fettes College. Guests arrived in all their finery wearing the maddest of hats. It was a spectacular beginning to one of our finest ever events, this time a partnership with Fettes College.

Proceedings began with an exquisite performance by ballerina Gaby Lang who danced "Alice." A fashion show followed, a Mad Hatters Costume performance. Then a Michelin Star dinner by Martin Wishart. It was to die for - interspersed by the most outstanding entertainment including former Fettesian Rosha, opera singer Catriona Clark, The Other Guys and Tenors Incognito. The highlight of the night, our guests singing their hearts out to Queen, whilst standing on their chairs spinning their table napkins. I will never forget it

Martin Bayfield conducted a lively auction and this incredible evening raised over £425,000. A heartfelt thanks to all our guests for their unending generosity which will support the work of MMT and scholarships and bursaries enabling gifted children to attend the College.
