roald-dahlBubbles and face painting, craft and cartoon workshops, a treasure hunt and outdoor activities – just some of the events due to take place in Caernarfon on 16th & 17th September to celebrate Roald Dahl’s centenary.

The ENORMOUS weekend, organised by Gwynedd Libraries and Community Arts Unit and Palas Print, and supported by Literature Wales and the Welsh Government as part of the Roald Dahl 100 Wales celebrations, begins on Friday evening 16th September with a story journey, and will continue through Saturday with events in Caernarfon Library in the morning and in Palace Street in the afternoon.

“Our aim in organising the event was to have lots of fun inspired by Roald Dahl’s work,” said Nia Gruffydd, Gwynedd Libraries’ User Services Manager.

“We very much wanted to bring the work of Roald Dahl to life, to insprie children’s creativity, with art, craft, outdoor activity, theatre events and, of course, reading and writing,” she added.
