Based on Roald Dahl's story The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me

A giraffe, a pelican, a young man and a monkey go into the business of window cleaning and suddenly find themselves foiling a robbery at the house of the Duke of Hampshire. In the end, they open a sweet shop and invite all their friends for a party.

It’s a big fizz-whizz of a tale from the gloriumptious imagination of the world’s favourite children’s author, Roald Dahl, and we’re inviting you to spend the day reliving the action.

You’ll get to make your own props and costumes, sing songs to tell the story, and if you’re lucky, you might even discover the delicious pink and purple flowers of the tinkle-tinkle tree. The whole day culminates in a sharing session in the beautiful Jerwood Hall.

If you are feeling creative, why not come dressed as one of the characters?
