Waterstones in The Shires Shopping Centre was recently taken over by the magical world of Roald Dahl in celebration of the author's 100th birthday. 

With free activities for children taking place, which included colouring pictures of The BFG and storytelling from some of Roald Dahl's classic books, the activities celebrated the fantastic tales the popular author created. 

Roald Dahl Day takes place on the 13th September every year and sees events take place across the UK celebrating famous stories such as James & the Giant Peach, Charlie & the Chocolate Factory and Matilda.

 Sarah-Louise Moore, Centre Manager at The Shires Shopping Centre, commented:

"Roald Dahl is an author that has definitely stood the test of time and his stories are loved as much by adults as they are by children. Young visitors to the centre seemed to thoroughly enjoy taking part in Waterstones' activities which really helped to bring Roald Dahl's magical characters to life."
