The Hive is celebrating Roald Dahl Day on Saturday 16th September from 10am to 4pm and has some ‘Phizz Whizzing’ activities planned for children.

Hive staff will be dressed up as characters from the stories and throughout the day families can take part in colouring, crafts and story time.

From 10am children can book their seat to design and take-away a special ‘Danny the Champion of the World’ Romany style plate. The sessions are £2.50 a child and run at 10am, 12pm, 1pm and 2pm.

There are colouring activities for children who can create their own gloriumptious party hat and filthsome Mr Twit beard.

At 12.30pm and 3.30pm The Hive staff will be recreating one of George’s Marvellous experiments and at 11am and 2.45pm there will be special Rat-a-tat storytelling Tales from Roald Dahl’s most loved books.

Janine Downes, The Hive Library Manager, said: “Last year the Summer Reading Challenge’s theme was Roald Dahl. Everyone had such great fun at the various Roald Dahl events and loved coming in fancy dress as characters from the stories. There are so many incredible books that have stood the test of time that I’m sure this year’s event will be a really enjoyable day.”
