Peaches and Dreams - Celebrate Roald Dahl 100

Peaches and Dreams - Celebrate Roald Dahl 100

13 September 2016

To celebrate Roald Dahl’s 100th Birthday we are launching our very own Peaches and Dreams competition.

Dreams play a large part in many of Roald Dahl’s stories and James and the Giant Peach is no different: James dreams of escaping his two awful aunts; Old-Green-Grasshopper dreams of a land of music; Miss Spider dreams of a land of adventures; Centipede dreams of a land of fun; Ladybird dreams of a land of beauty, joy and happiness; and poor Earthworm dreams of going nowhere and staying safe.

We would love you all to join in and decorate the peach below with your dream, be it a dream holiday, school trip or even the dream you had last night! Decorate through collage/paint/photography/crayons, cut it out with adult supervision and then send it to us to be displayed on our very own peach tree in the Watford Palace Theatre foyer during October Half Term.

 Post or hand in your decorated peaches to Watford Palace Theatre box office then come and see your peach on our tree and watch the fantastic James and the Giant Peach with performances from Thursday 27 – Saturday 29 October.

The winning peach will receive family tickets to our panto (Beauty and the Beast) in December 2016 as well as a copy of the classic novel signed by the cast.

PO address:

c/o Participation Department, Watford Palace Theatre, 20 Clarendon Road,

Watford, Hertfordshire, WD17 1JZ

 Please submit your decorated Peaches to us by Monday 24th October.

Please remember to put your name, age and also provide a contact number/email address.
