Explore three different ways that Roald Dahl got ideas for his fantabulous characters and use two of them to start your own creative character. You’ll (virtually) walk in Roald’s footsteps to discover where his characters come from, and look closely at a very important shoe... You’ll even get a rare opportunity to look behind the scenes at a very special place in the Museum!
We will focus on the characters of Matilda, James, and the BFG, but you don’t have to have read these books to benefit from the session.
Discover 4 key techniques that Roald Dahl used to create characters before using two of these to start your own unique creation. There’ll be a chance to experiment with Gobblefunk as well as explore the magic behind a very ordinary bamboo cane. You’ll even get a behind-the scenes peek of somewhere special in the Museum!
We will focus on the character of the BFG but you don’t have to have read this book to benefit from the session.

All sessions are suitable for up to 35 students plus accompanying adult carers. We are unable to offer the livestream sessions to larger groups as it would make our planned activities and interaction with your class less successful.
We can run three live streaming sessions in one day. You are welcome to book as many of these as you’d like.
We can stream to you via Zoom or Teams. We will need to know in advance of your session which platform you would like to use so that the session can be set up accordingly.
Yes, we provide a free 20 minute Tech test which is carried out up to 7 days in advance of the session. This will check all our tech is working with yours. We will also go through the structure of the session and answer any questions you may have. We strongly recommend all schools take up the offer of the Tech test. The tech tests usually take place after 3pm.
