One week to go until Roald Dahl Day 2014 - from skydiving Oompa-Loompas to chocolate trails and much more...

It's nearly here! Roald Dahl Day 2014 promises to be a truly whipple-scrumptious affair, as we're also busy celebrating 50 years of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory this year. That means there is a LOT of exciting stuff going on in the run-up to the big day and, of course, on Saturday 13th itself. 

So here are a few of the highlights to watch out for on Saturday 13th...

The Oompa-Loompa Sky Dive

Lots of very brave people will be dressing up as Oompa-Loompas to jump out of a plance and raise money for Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity. Keep your eyes on the skies...

Archive tours and much more at the Roald Dahl Museum

If you're near Roald Dahl's hometown of Great Missenden, what better place to celebrate the birthday of the World's No. 1 Storyteller than at the Roald Dahl Museum? With trails, storytelling and face-painting, it'll be a whipple-scrumptious day.

Throw your own Charlie party

Veruca Salt was from England, Augustus Gloop lived in Germany, Violet Beauregarde hailed from the USA... wherever YOU are, you can celebrate Roald Dahl Day by throwing your very own Charlie and the Chocolate Factory party. And what better day to do it than Roald Dahl's own birthday?
