Roald Dahl’s Tremendous Adventures at Tatton Park

Roald Dahl celebrations at Tatton Park during 2016

Join us for a year packed full of marvellous and wonderful things to do as part of an official year long programme of events for the centenary of Roald Dahl's birth.

The most gloriumptious things are set to happen in 2016 as Tatton Park embarks on a magical journey celebrating 100 years since the birth of Roald Dahl, the world’s number 1 storyteller. Working closely with the Roald Dahl Literary Estate and legendary illustrator Quentin Blake, the year-long programme of events at Tatton Park is just one of a host of activities taking place throughout 2016 as part of Roald Dahl 100.

Amongst the jam-packed year of surprises at Tatton Park are the most imaginative trails for children. From Easter to the end of September you’ll be invited to join Danny the Champion of the World in the Gardens, Fantastic Mr Fox at the Farm, and Matilda in the Mansion….and out in the Parkland The Enourmous Crocodile will be lurking.

Kicking off the year’s celebration will be a Splendiferous Scarecrow Festival in the Gardens in February, an opportunity to meet some terrific scarecrows inspired by the best-loved of Roald Dahl’s characters. Expect to be entertained as Illyria Outdoor Theatre puts on a splendid performance of Danny the Champion of the World in the spectacular outdoor setting of the Old Hall. Outdoor cinema comes to Tatton’s beautiful Parkland with a late summer evening screening of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory starring the legendary Gene Wilder. And there will be plenty of invitations to settle down and listen in as Roald Dahl’s extraordinary storytelling weaves its way through the Park throughout the year.

Throughout the year’s activity visitors will be able to enjoy many of Quentin Blake’s iconic illustrations from Roald Dahl’s stories.

...So prepare yourself for one the most memorable and fantabulous outings of the year!
