Torquay Museum invites big kids and small kids alike to a fun-filled Roald Dahl Family Fun Day from 10am on Saturday 17th September to celebrate 100 years of the World’s No. 1 children’s storyteller, as part of a series of events throughout Britain to mark the centenary of his birth.

Talented Willy Wonka impersonator Jonty Depp will be at Torquay Museum in person to entertain visitors, and fans of the BFG, Matilda, Willy Wonka and all of Dahl’s other eccentric and loveable characters can enjoy a day of trails, films and fun.
