In conjunction with the ‘Quentin Blake: Inside Stories’ exhibition, Rachel White, Collections Manager at The Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre, picks (and will bring along) some of her ‘top ten’ archive treasures from the collection. This illustrated talk will highlight some of the most-loved items in the museum’s collection. Rachel will explore the objects in the archive, such as The BFG’s sandal, actually one of Roald Dahl’s very own Norwegian sandals, as illustrated by Quentin Blake! Roald Dahl’s letters, ideas books, manuscripts and first drafts also feature in Rachel’s ‘top ten’ treasures.
Advance booking required. Talks last for approximately 45 minutes with a short time for questions.
