Roald Dahl fun day for young readers at city bookshop

Have your say

Waterstones book shop is to host a Matilda-themed fun day paying homage to the Roald Dahl character.

The event takes place on Saturday, May 25, and aims to raise money for the Children’s Reading Fund.

Matilda will be read throughout the day to young visitors at the store in Orchard Square in Sheffield city centre. There will also be a raffle to win a Bruce Bogtrotter’s Chocolate Cake, a word-spotting competition, and all staff will be in fancy dress.
