LLANDUDNO event organisers are hoping to assemble holders of a town title for a very important date in the future.
People planning the opening of the new Alice in Wonderland- themed bandstand on Happy Valley, on September 9, are hoping to trace Llandudno’s cast of Miss Alices - dating back to 1982.
The new bandstand will form part of the town’s Alice Trail, and organisers are keen to get as many of the former Alices as possible to attend.
DJ and Olympic torch runner Ian Turner, who is helping to organise the re-union, said many of the former Alices may have since left the town or married and changed their names - meaning the help of the community would be needed to track them all down.
Mr Turner said “We have lots of things planned for this major community event, and we thought it would be great to include the first ever reunion of all previous holders of the Miss Alice title - the problem is finding them all.
“If anyone knows the whereabouts of any previous holder of the Miss Alice title please contact me right away.”
Members of the public are also invited to attend the opening ceremony dressed as one of their favourite characters from Alice in Wonderland, or alternatively dress with a pink item of clothing in aid of event charity Breast Cancer Care Cymru.
