BFG Dream Jar Workshop

Thursday 18th February 2016 3pm - 4pm Grand Central Birmingham Children's Event, Free Event

‘I would dearly love to have an elefunt to ride on,’ the BFG said dreamily ‘I would so much love to have a jumbly big elefunt and go riding through green forests picking peachy fruits off the trees all day long.’

Among many things, Roald Dahl’s BFG taught us about dreams (and dream jars!). This unique workshop will invite children to write the recipe for their dreams, and fill their very own dream jars with all necessary ‘ingredients’.


What are your dreams? To be an astronaut? To have a pet giraffe? To swim to the bottom of the ocean? We want to hear them all!


Everyone will get to take home a personalised dream jar to put beside their bed to help make their dreams come true.  


Join us in celebrating Roald Dahl’s 100th Birthday with this entertaining half-term treat – adults are welcome to join in too.


Venue: Foyles, Grand Central Birmingham, B2 4BF
