Roald Dahl was a devoted Dad who was always coming up with ways to amuse and entertain his children, for example climbing up to their bedroom windows and pretending to be the BFG! He obviously aspired to be like Danny’s Dad in Danny the Champion of the World who Danny says is “the most marvellous and exciting father a boy ever had”. The Roald Dahl Museum is offering some extra-usual ways to celebrate Father’s Day this year, so grab your dad, grandad, brother, uncle or friends and start planning your trip.

RoaldDahlChocolate Decorating

On Saturday 18 June, channel your inner chocolate factory owner and create a chocolatey masterpiece using sprinkles and sweets. Brilliant to give as a Father’s Day gift, or as an activity to enjoy together (adults are welcome to have a go!).

Superhero Dad
SuperheroDadOn Sunday 19 June, join Timothy Knapman and Joe Berger, the creators of the brilliant book, Superhero Dad. They’ll read from the book, show you some of their dory-hunky drawings and will be happy to sign copies of the book which will be available to buy in the Museum Shop.

Fantastic Pheasant Hunt

On Saturday and Sunday, you can go on a pheasant hunt just like Danny and his dad in Danny the Champion of the World. Collect the clues around the Museum and be in with the chance of a prize.
