THE tales of celebrated children's author Roald Dahl will come to life in a series of workshops at Sudbury Hall.

The National Trust property is hosting two workshops on September 13 to mark Roald Dahl Day – which is also the 50th anniversary of the publication of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Visitors are being invited to dress up as their favourite characters to take part in a writing workshop inspired by the James and Giant Peach author.

Children's author Rhian Tracey, who was inspired to write by The Witches, will lead the session.

Later in the day a host of Dahl's colourful characters will take over the Museum of Childhood.

Learning officer Kat Ralls said: "We can't wait to get dressed up and bring the wonderful world of Roald Dahl to life. I'm hoping to see lots of Willy Wonkas and Matildas walking around. Maybe our writing workshop will inspire the next Roald Dahl."
