Celebrate Roald Dahl Day in 2017 with a Dahlicious Dress Up Day for Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity.
The 13 September marks Roald Dahl Day, an annual celebration of the world's number one storyteller. Every year, thousands of schools, community groups and libraries hold their own celebrations and this year is no different.
There are lots of ways to mark Roald Dahl Day, you can experience the magic of the Minpins at The Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre or why not become a Roald Dahl Day hero? How about hosting your very own Dahlicious Dress Up Day?
The Dahlicious Dress Up Day is where schools, community groups and libraries across the globe, get dressed up as their favourite Roald Dahl character and donate £1 to Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity. Roald Dahl believed in taking practical steps to help improve the lives of those around him and Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity continues Roald Dahl's legacy by providing specialist children's nurses and family grants to support families affected by serious illness in the UK.
If you want to take part in The Dahlicious Dress Up Day, watch the video to find out what it's all about. There are tons of FREE resources which are available to download. You can also download the FREE Roald Dahl Day Party Pack which is bursting with information about how to plan your marvellous party. Don't forget to tune into the Roald Dahl Day Show on 13 September with Puffin Virtually Live.
What's more, there are some fantabulous dressing-up ideas if you're short on time and you can even benefit from a 10% Dahlicious discount on your favourite costumes in the Roald Dahl Shop. Just enter 'Dahlicious17' at the checkout.
