Roald Dahl Story Day

September is Roald Dahl’s birth month and this year on the 13th, a wonderful mixture of events will be taking place. If Roald Dahl were alive today, he’d be 105 this year. That’s a ripe old age, much older than Grandpa Joe, who was only ninety-six and a half.

Roald Dahl Story Day!

Join in the global celebration of Roald Dahl stories this September with Roald Dahl Story Day. Marked on the 13th of September, we’ll be celebrating our favourite Roald Dahl characters, stories and moments with fans the world over. Visit our Roald Dahl Day hub for more fun activities, lesson resources and ways to celebrate.

The entire month will be filled with so many different activities, taking place all over the world. One of the more interactive and entertaining events is the Dahlicious Dress-up Day. Children go to school dressed up in their favourite Roald Dahl character. It’s a fun day and all in aid of Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity.

The very first Roald Dahl day took place on what would have been Roald’s ninetieth birthday in 2006. Celebrations took place all over the world, with the day being recognised with fun-filled events in the UK, USA and Holland. Twelve years later, and many more people are recognising this special day.

So, on the 13th September if you’re going to be meeting a BFG like Sophie, attempting to move things with your mind like Matilda or simply wanting to visit a chocolate factory like Charlie, make sure it’s lots of fun! A downloadable party pack is available at
