BFG movie display case

Take a peek at a buzzwangling new BFG display at the Roald Dahl Museum which features costumes from the movie, illustrations and some treasures from the Museum archive.

The displays in Boy and Solo galleries trace the development of one of Roald Dahl's most popular books; from the first mention of the giant in one of the author's Story Ideas Books, right through to the production of the new BFG film starring Mark Rylance.

Gobblefunk words written by Roald Dahl

A page of Gobblefunk words written by Roald Dahl. The first draft of The BFG contained no Gobblefunk language at all!

The BFG's sandal at the Roald Dahl Museum

The sandal Roald Dahl sent to Quentin Blake. This is the kind of shoe Roald Dahl wanted the BFG to wear. Originally the BFG had been drawn with boots on.

You can view the BFG display until the end of the year. Find out more about visiting the Museum here.
