ROALD DAHL’S CITY OF THE UNEXPECTED - FURTHER DETAILS ANNOUNCED!

news imageOn Saturday 17 September, Cardiff’s city centre will become a place where reality is turned on its head, and where the laws of physics, logic and the predictable will give way to magic and the surreal, as if Roald Dahl himself is at the helm. Wherever audiences find themselves, they’ll make extraordinary discoveries. Featuring a cast of thousands, there will be unexpected sights, performances, pop-ups and spectacles appearing on the streets and in buildings throughout the city centre, culminating in a finale that evening.

On Sunday 18 September, audiences will discover some of Roald Dahl’s biggest (and well-known) fans reading extracts from his stories in some unusual and extraordinary locations across the city centre. And in the afternoon, large-scale mayhem will burst out again, with audiences invited to join an unprecedented mass picnic in Bute Park – in their pyjamas – and to bring with them some food inspired by the man himself. This event will bring together all the themes, stories, characters and cast of the weekend in an unexpected, all-day festival of Dahl-esque food, music, story and of Cardiff’s community.

More information about Roald Dahl’s City of the Unexpected, including travel and accommodation advice and answers to FAQs, can be found on the event’s website: http://www.cityoftheunexpected.wales/
