Wakefield Museum, Wakefield WF1 2DD

Saturday, July 14, 2018 to Saturday, January 5, 2019

To mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of Roald Dahl, Sir Quentin Blake created a series of 10 portraits of memorable characters from Dahl's well-loved collection of books.   Visitors are invited to imagine that the characters have been asked to sit for a formal portrait;  some of the characters featured include the Twits, Charlie and the most formidable Miss Trunchbull.

The exhibition includes fun hands-on activities; and there are family sessions with a special Roald Dahl theme at Wakefield Museum and Wakefield Library throughout the summer.

The exhibition was first seen at The British Library in 2016, and is touring the UK until early 2019, generously supported by Quentin Blake and Arts Council England.
