It tortoise a lot – Children enjoy Esio Trot exhibition
MUSEUM visitors enjoyed a display of costumes and props from the BBC’s new film adaptation of Roald Dahl’s Esio Trot.
The Roald Dahl Museum in High Street, Great Missenden, has secured notable items from the film which stars Dustin Hoffman as Mr Hoppy, Dame Judi Dench as Mrs Silver and James Corden as the narrator and was broadcast over the new year.
The museum display included the ‘TortoiseCatcher’ on display, an ingenious device used by Mr Hoppy to reach and catch Alfie from Mrs Silver’s balcony below him. It also featured Judi Dench’s outfits.
