Roald Dahl's birthday party

2016 marks 100 years since the birth of Roald Dahl!

To celebrate the author’s life and timeless stories, Wales is hosting an ongoing programme of ‘all things Dahl’ including outreach events by Literature Wales, a book of illustrations by Quentin Blake to be released on World Book Day, Spielberg’s theatrical release of ‘The BFG’, an exhibition at the Southbank Centre’s Imagine Festival in London, the annual Puffin Virtually Live Roald Dahl Show, and the launch of new editions of the author’s stories by Penguin Random House.

The highlight will be the City of the Unexpected, a city-wide arts festival bringing to life the world of Dahl in the streets of Cardiff.
