Have your say

Do your little ones adore Roald Dahl? Well obviously they do, who doesn’t?!

This Saturday, Off The Shelf will be celebrating the 100th birthday of the beloved children’s writer with a big bash on The Moor, from 1pm to 4pm - and everyone’s invited!

There will be a whole afternoon of free, wizz-popping fun in honour of the man behind all our childhood favourites, from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and The BFG, to The Twits and Matilda.

Come dressed as your favourite Roald Dahl character and strut your staff on the catwalk to be in with the chance of winning a prize; enjoy songs from all Roald Dahl’s films; follow a trail around a giant peach in front of the Moor Market; join in a host of craft activities, including making masks, crowns and even your own pair of BFG ears; Sheffield artist Samantha Galbraith will be doing Dahl style instant portraits for people to take away with them; enjoy a walkabout with your favourite character - wile away some time with Willy Wonka, or make friends with Fantastic Mr Fox; enjoy Dahl-themed drama sketches with Pyjama Drama; let you little ones speak to a robot in a phone box who will produce a poem just for them based on Dahl’s stories.
