At weekends and during the school holidays we offer various additional activities that are free for Museum visitors.


Listen to tales from Roald Dahl's stories, including Revolting Rhymes and Dirty Beasts. Storytelling sessions are free to attend and you can join in with as many as you like during your visit providing there is space in the storytelling room. Listen out for announcements in the galleries.

Join in with storytelling sessions every weekend throughout the year (unless we are closed for Christmas). On Saturdays and Sundays these usually take place at 11.30am, 12.30pm, 1.30pm, 2.30pm and 3.30pm. 

On weekdays during Buckinghamshire school holidays storytelling usually takes place at 10.30am, 11.30am, 12.30pm, 1.30pm, 2.30pm and 3.30pm.

Writing Hut talks

On certain weekdays in school holidays we also run at least one Writing Hut talk. These take place by the replica Writing Hut and are packed full of interesting facts about Roald Dahl's life, books and writing routine.

Times can vary each day. Please look at the What's On posters in the galleries, or ask a member of staff when you are in the galleries.

Storytelling and Writing Hut talks are free and you don't need to book for them. However we do strongly advise booking in advance (up to the day before) for general admission.
