Roald Dahl Comes to Blair

9th Sep 2014

Saturday 13th September is Roald Dahl Day and this year Blairgowrie Library will be hosting a Roald Dahl event to celebrate it. From 11.15 to 12.15, the Library will be putting on an hour of activities involving favourite Dahl characters for children aged 4-10. So come along and have some fun with George and his mayhemic medicine, the foulsome Witches and Matilda and her parent-scaring tricks. Organised in collaboration with Good Morning Britain’s literacy campaign, the Library will also be giving 50 copies of ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid’ to 50 lucky children. Just the thing to whet children’s appetites in the run up to the BOOKMARK Festival when miniBOOKMARK will be offering a number of events for younger readers, many of whom have recently had the opportunity to explore the joys of reading and writing under the tutelage of BOOKMARK’s Writer-in-Residence Joan Lennon. The event this weekend is free and children aged 8 and under must be accompanied by an adult. For further details please contact Blairgowrie Library.


We were here last night and had to come back today.

We know we will have a lovely time.

It’s been absolutely brilliant, such a lot of hard work has gone into this and it shows.

Nice venue - clean, fresh. Fantastic auditorium.

Excellent. I’ll definitely be back next year. Sally Magnusson was so interesting and inspiring. The calibre of speakers was first class. Thanks so much.

What a brilliant festival! Great authors, lovely venue, & everyone I’ve spoken to is just so friendly!

Fantastic art work from the High School pupils.
