Explore the magical world of Roald Dahl these school holidays

The waiting is over! Here’s what’s happening in the July School Holidays at a library near you…

Due to the release of the movie The BFG and with 2016 being his 100th birthday, we are celebrating that amazing author – Roald Dahl.

He is many people’s favourite author and his books have become classics for a number of generations. Lots have been turned into movies too – The BFG, Fantastic Mr Fox, The Witches, Matilda…

During the school holidays you can whizz-pop your way into a library for some whoopsy-splunkers fun! We will be exploring the life of Roald Dahl, learning Gobblefunk (the language of The BFG), competing against each other in a clever matching game, and creating our own dream jars. You’ll be frothbuggling if you miss this one.
