Celebrate Roald Dahl 100 and the release of the BFG film, with a summer of Big Friendly Fun at the Roald Dahl Museum.
Where else can you make some BFG ears, enjoy some flushbunkled giant parties or model some ucky-mucky clay giants? The Big Friendly Summer will be packed with exciting activities and events every day, and kicks off at the Museum on Thursday 21 July.
You can also meet some fantabulous authors including Michael De Souza, creator of Rastamouse on Thursday 28 July and Piers Torday, the author of The Last Wild on Thursday 11 August. Centenary Storyteller in Residence Sandra Agard will be delighting audiences every Wednesday in August and poet and guitarist James Carter will be adding some music to the mix on Tuesday 26 July and Tuesday 30 August.
Some of the marvellous Museum staff will also be heading Great Missenden Library on Fridays from 29 July to 2 September on to make Dream Jars. The library is a short walk from the Museum and was the inspiration for Matilda's library.
Visitors can also enjoy storytelling, drop-in crafts and Museum trails every day.
Closed Mondays except Bank Holiday Monday 29 August. Full details can be found on the What’s On pages. We recommend pre-booking for all activities including Dream Jars at the library by calling 01494 892192.
