Wednesday 13 September -
2 - 2:30pm GMT

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 (make sure you’ve got your copy in time for Roald Dahl Day and order it now). 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.

Download the free splendiferous Roald Dahl Day party pack, which is filled with phizz-whizzing activiities and lesson plans at www.roalddahl.com/partypack2017

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

Complete your school’s Roald Dahl collection and pre-order Billy and the Minpins
