The Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre
Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire
Phone 01494 892 192
www.roalddahlmuseum.org

This new museum is dedicated to the children’s writer Roald Dahl. All his drafts, manuscripts, letters and photos are housed in this museum and archived online.

This is a brilliant place to spend a day for children — or even older people who grew up reading Fantastic Mr Fox and the like.

There are games, books and displays on contemporary children’s writers. A display of photographs of Roald Dahl between 1939-43 is being shown until 31 October.

Asylum Seekers Are Welcome Here
Written by Bristol Defend the Asylum Seekers Campaign

To mark Asylum Week next week Bristol Defend the Asylum Seekers Campaign has produced this play detailing its work.

The production poignantly depicts the experiences of asylum seekers and immigrants in Britain. It also showcases the talent of asylum seekers in Bristol and recounts the work of the Bristol campaign.

The play will be showing at Malcolm X centre on Tuesday 21 June at 7pm and at Bristol Museum at 2pm on Sunday 26 June. This is a must see production.
