More than 20 cakes were baked by the market traders and visitors could provide a donation to Macmillan Cancer for a slice of cake and cup of tea or coffee.

There was also a raffle with two cakes being the prizes and traders also dressed up in fancy dress.

Jamie Walker of CJ’s Events Warwickshire said: ‘Macmillan is an amazing charity, and with it being their ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’, we thought we’d put a twist on it and hold a Mad Hatters Tea Party.

“We are totally amazed by the cakes our traders baked in the week, and the effort they went to dress up.

“It was an amazing atmosphere – everyone loved it. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who made it happen.”

The tea party event managed to raise £305 for Macmillan.

There will be another themed market at Warwick on Saturday October 28 for Halloween, where there will be traders in fancy dress, free pumpkin carving, a bat hut and more.
