Weekend and school holidays events

At weekends and in the school holidays, our storytellers will entertain you with Roald Dahl’s Dirty Beasts and Revolting Rhymes and you can join in with our events and workshop sessions. Pick up a free Village or Countryside Trail and head out to discover the places that inspired the stories. Your admission wristband will allow you to come and go as you please throughout the day of your visit.

What our visitors have said about their visit...

I would highly recommend visiting the museum. The staff were very passionate about Roald Dahl and knew their stuff. The coffee was great. We intend on visiting again as my daughter thought it was amazing.

The museum is small but full of zest, creativity and mischief; just like one of Dahl’s beloved characters.
