10:30am to 12:30pm, 6 December 2022, BFI Southbank

Through film clips, discussion and drama activities, we will dive into the world of Roald Dahl. We will begin with a brief overview of Dahl’s work before exploring three of his biggest stories: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The BFG and Matilda. We will focus on a few key scenes and compare and contrast the role of the protagonist in each. There will also be an opportunity for some Oompa-Loompas to take to the stage and demonstrate that their acting should save them from the chokey!
