Behind the Scenes at the Roald Dahl Museum (Mon 26th Sept, 10am-12pm)

26 September at 10:00 am until 12:00 pm


Head to the Roald Dahl Museum in the village of Great Missenden for an exclusive look behind the scenes. Your visit will start with a peek in the Museum’s extraordinary archive with their archivist Rachel. She will show you some of the collection’s most treasured possessions including early drafts of Matilda and some of the letters Roald wrote home to his mother from school.

You’ll find out about Roald Dahl’s local links and discover how the Chilterns scenery inspired some of the author’s most popular books including Fantastic Mr Fox and Danny the Champion of the World. You’ll have the chance to see Roald’s drafts and hand-written notes up-close and ask all your burning questions to the expert.

After, you’ll be able to explore the galleries whilst the Museum is shut to the general public. This is a unique opportunity to see the author’s Writing Hut away from the crowds.

Unfortunately the Cafe is currently closed so they are unable to provide refreshments. Please feel free to bring your own food and drink to consume in the Courtyard. You can also browse the shop and will be given an exclusive 10% discount.

At the end of your visit, you’ll get to take away a fabulous goody bag. If you wish to extend your experience, you can pick up one of the Museum self-guided trails and explore the village and countryside that inspired Roald Dahl.

The experience lasts approx. 2 hours.

All events will comply with government guidelines on Covid-19, applicable at the time.  If any Covid-19 outbreaks occur, or new restrictions are imposed, the event will be cancelled and a full refund given.
