One week to Virtually Live: Roald Dahl Day! From the home of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, to schools around the world...

One week today we'll be continuing the Roald Dahl Day celebrations with a very special live webcast, beamed from the home of the new musical production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory into thousands of schools across the globe - that's right, it's nearly time for Virtually Live: Roald Dahl Day 2014!

Every year, Puffin Books celebrate Roald Dahl's birthday with a live web-stream, inviting classrooms around the world to join in the Roald Dahl Day fun.

This year, as we're also celebrating 50 whipple-scrumptious years of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the 2014 Virtually Live Roald Dahl Day event is definitely chocolate-flavoured...

Classes will be able to:

  • Send in questions about Roald Dahl for author Michael Rosen
  • See Roald Dahl’s principal illustrator, Sir Quentin Blake, in action
  • Join the cast of the new musical production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory from the show's West End home
  • Watch a Willy-Wonka inspired cookery feature with chef Justin Gellatly

Plus live Q&As, new videos and much much more for children aged 7 - 12.

The event will be streamed from the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane on Monday 15th September from 2 - 2.30pm BST. Classes can watch the live-stream via the Virtually Live website.

There's still time to register your class - so don't miss out, head over to the Puffin Virtually Live website right NOW.

See you there...
