Plenty of Fa­ther’s Day fun for the lit­tle Dahlings

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

CHIL­DREN can en­sure their dads have a fantab­u­lous Fa­ther’s Day at the Roald Dahl Mu­seum, in Great Mis­senden.

Roald Dahl was a de­voted dad who was al­ways com­ing up with ways to amuse and en­ter­tain his chil­dren – for ex­am­ple, climb­ing up to their bed­room win­dows and pre­tend­ing to be the BFG.

He ob­vi­ously as­pired to be like Danny’s dad in Danny the Cham­pion of the World, who Danny says is ‘the most mar­vel­lous and ex­cit­ing fa­ther a boy ever had’.

The mu­seum, in High Street, is of­fer­ing some ex­tra-usual ways to cel­e­brate Fa­ther’s Day this year, so grab your dad, gran­dad, brother, un­cle or friends and start plan­ning your trip. Choco­late


On Satur­day, chan­nel your in­ner choco­late fac­tory owner and cre­ate a choco­latey mas­ter­piece us­ing sprin­kles and sweets.

Bril­liant to give as a Fa­ther’s Day gift, or as an ac­tiv­ity to en­joy together. Adults are wel­come to have a go.

Su­per­hero Dad

On Sun­day, join Ti­mothy Knap­man and Joe Berger, the cre­ators of the bril­liant book, Su­per­hero Dad.

They will read from the book, show you some of their do­ry­hunky draw­ings and will be happy to sign copies of the book, which will be avail­able to buy in the mu­seum shop.

Fan­tas­tic Pheas­ant Hunt

On Satur­day and Sun­day, you can go on a pheas­ant hunt just like Danny and his dad in Danny the Cham­pion of the World.

Col­lect the clues around the mu­seum and be in with the chance of a prize.
