The Big, Friendly BFG Summer Celebrations!
Do you love the BFG as much as we do? YES! We were already super excited for The BFG movie that opens TODAY in the United States. Then we found out that there are loads of BFG activities taking place throughout Great Britain all summer long to celebrate not only the release of the movie, but also the 100th anniversary of Roald Dahl’s birth. Book us a ticket, we’re so there!
The film, directed by Steven Spielberg and based on the book by Cardiff-born author Roald Dahl, was filmed at locations across Britain including Blenheim Palace, London, the Isle of Skye and Bamburgh Beach in Northumberland. You can visit all those places and participate in all the exciting events celebrating both the movie and Roald Dahl’s September 13th birthday. Check them out below!
London & Partners’ Dream Jar Trail in London
This summer the streets of London will be transformed by magical giant dream jars containing the dreams of celebrities and top artists such as Steven Spielberg, Sophie Dahl, Quentin Blake, Nadiya Hussain of Bake Off fame, Paralympian David Weir, Game of Thrones’ Maisie Williams and Arsenal Football Club. Find out more here!
Cardiff: City of the Unexpected
Cardiff: City of the Unexpected is a birthday weekend celebration taking place September 17th and 18th. To mark his centenary and to give thanks for the legacy he created, this will be a totally surprising celebration of the man, his characters and his stories. The Welsh capital will become a place where reality is turned on its head, and where the laws of physics, logic and the predictable will give way to magic, fun, invention and the surreal, as if Roald Dahl himself is at the helm.
Don’t miss out on any of these fun events either!
It’s going to be the biggest, friendliest celebration ever!
