Roald Dahl
Have your say

Join some scrumdiddlyumptious musicians for a phizz-whizzing concert of whoopsy-whiffling music this weekend!

Music in the Round will host Roald Dahl’s ‘Cinderella & Dirty Beasts’ this Saturday at the Crucible Studio. The family concert is part of the national Roald Dahl 100 celebrations, to mark what would have been the author’s 100th.

The concert (for children aged 5+) features three of Dahl’s hilarious poems from Dirty Beasts as well as his tongue-in-cheek interpretation of classic fairy-tale Cinderella.

Organisers of Off the Shelf literary festival are also running free Dahl-inspired craft workshops beforehand in the Central Library where children aged 5-9 can make a Cinderella crown or Dirty Beast mask. Visit www.musicintheround.co.uk and call 0114 273 4400 to book .
