Celebrate Roald Dahl Day on 13th September

« Back

This Roald Dahl Day encourage your little one to #BelieveInMagic by recreating moments from Roald Dahl stories just for them! Use these simple ideas and templates to help your little chiddlers feel as special as their favourite Roald Dahl heroes.

A great way to celebrate Roald Dahl Day is also throwing a marvellous and magical Roald Dahl Day party! Inside the Roald Dahl Day 2017 Party Pack is everything you need to host a marvellous and magical Roald Dahl Day party on Wednesday 13 September (Roald Dahl’s birthday)!

Every Roald Dahl story has a sprinkling of magic, from Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory to the BFG’s dream jars, and this year fans everywhere are waiting with glittering eyes to see Billy and the Minpins, published by Puffin and illustrated for the first time by Quentin Blake.

Whether you’re celebrating in a bookshop, school, library or a living room, this pack is filled with ideas. Maybe you’ll build a BFG dream cave, create a reading corner worthy of Matilda, or start growing an enchanted forest for future Minpins. Let your imagination run wild.

Why not find out which Roald Dahl hero you are? Or discover who the biggest Roald Dahl fan is in your house. Or get stuck into our reading and writing activities, all inspired by Roald Dahl tales.

Puffin Virtually Live
Continue the party by tuning in to Puffin Virtually Live on the day, a webcast broadcast from the countryside of Buckinghamshire where Roald Dahl lived and you’ll even get to take a tour of the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre!

On Wednesday 13th September from 2 – 2.30pm join a glittering line-up of guests who’ll be championing their favourite characters, from the ingenious Matilda to marvellous scientist George! What’s more, you’ll get to learn more about a new hero – Billy!

This September, Quentin Blake is illustrating Billy and the Minpins for the very first time. It’s a magical adventure which takes our brave Billy into the dark forest where he meets tiny people who are smaller than matchsticks! To celebrate its publication, the show will be broadcast from the countryside of Buckinghamshire where Roald Dahl lived and you’ll even get to take a tour of the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre!

Last year over 1 million school children around the world watched the show – so go on, sign up and join the celebrations.

The show will be suitable for children and oompa-loompas aged 7+
