September is Roald Dahl’s birth month and Roald Dahl Story Day is an annual global celebration of the famous writer’s marvellous stories.
Roald Dahl is one of the world’s most celebrated writers of children’s books, and he was also an RAF fighter pilot, an intelligence officer and a diplomat.

He is the author of The BFG, The Twits, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Fantastic Mr Fox. Although best known for his children’s novels, he also wrote a range of adult fiction and short stories, and co-wrote the screenplay for Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

At Park Lane we celebrated this special day by wearing some of the costumes from his book characters!
