The Wondercrump World of Roald Dahl, a magical, interactive experience inspired by the life and works of the world’s most loved storyteller, opens at Wales Millennium Centre on August 12. Running until January 14, 2017, this will be the only opportunity to visit the experience outside of London this year.
Featuring fascinating artefacts from the Roald Dahl Museum & Story Centre, original manuscripts and handwritten letters, a large dash of magic and a sprinkling of mischief, The Wondercrump World of Roald Dahl adventures through the secrets of Dahl’s extraordinary life – from Llandaff school-boy to fighter pilot, inventor to historian of chocolate – and dives deep into the realms of this most treasured storyteller’s imagination.
The exhibition opened to great acclaim at Southbank Centre earlier this year and this the only opportunity outside of London to experience it within Roald Dahl 100 – Roald Dahl’s centenary year.
“It’s fantastic to be able to celebrate the world’s greatest storyteller with The Wondercrump World of Roald Dahl in Cardiff, the city of his birth.” said Graeme Farrow, Artistic Director at Wales Millennium Centre,” This magical exhibition allows you to explore Dahl’s pure imagination. Wondercump will inspire hundreds of young minds to go on to create wonderfully imaginative worlds of their own.”
Coinciding with the experience will be Wales Millennium Centre and National Theatre Wales’ City of the Unexpected on September 17 and 18, an extraordinary weekend-long event which will see Cardiff transformed into a city inspired by Dahl’s stories, his limitless imagination and his fondness for all things magical.
