Details

To mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of Roald Dahl, Sir Quentin Blake created a series of 10 portraits of memorable characters from Dahl's well-loved collection of books.

Visitors are invited to imagine that the characters have sat for a formal portrait. Some of the portraits include the Twits, Charlie and the most formidable Miss Trunchbull.

The exhibition includes some fun hands-on activities; look out for family sessions with a special Roald Dahl theme at Wakefield Museum and Wakefield Library throughout Summer.

The British Library exhibition generously supported by Quentin Blake and Arts Council England.
