Swizzfiggling fun, swashboggling sausage and mash and squiggly spaghetti will be in abundance at Heathrow this half term as the airport celebrates Roald Dahl.
The west London airport is expecting 1.8million passengers to take off from the site between October 17 and November 3.
During this period some of Roald Dahl’s best-loved, and loathed, characters will be on hand to make sure journeys are smooth, entertaining and fun.
Passengers will be able to take part in storytelling and craft sessions, activity sheets, and the chance to take a photo with Matilda, and there will also be kids eat free offers at a number of restaurants.
The activity marks a unique partnership between Heathrow, the award-winning Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre, Puffin Books and the Royal Shakespeare Company.
Claire Field, acting director of the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be taking some of the Roald Dahl magic to Heathrow this half-term.
“Roald Dahl famously wrote: ‘Watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.’
“This half-term, there will be Roald Dahl secrets and fun to be discovered in each and every terminal so keep your eyes peeled at all times.”
