Ashleigh & Pudsey from Britain's Got Talent and Meridian's very own Fred Dinenage will be the special guests at the Mad Hatter's Tea Party in Portsmouth later. It's a fun day out to lift spirits of children from local hospitals, and last year's event raised more than £2,000.
There will also be clowns, jugglers, stilt walkers, magicians, dancers, Daleks, a zoo, circus acts, limo rides and players from Portsmouth FC.
