Dahlicious Dress Up Day


1117455a8841e6e0751c6932fd7d69b2.jpgThis year's Dahlicious Dress Up Day is part of the biggest Roald Dahl Day party of all time! On the 13th September, Roald Dahl's 100th birthday, schools and groups across the globe will be dressing up, having a party, and donating £1 per child to Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity. Schools can also take part on any day they like and choose to be their favourite Roald Dahl character or even dress up in Roald Dahl's favourite colour: Yummy Yellow.

The annual Dahlicious Dress Up Day raises money to help provide Roald Dahl nurses and family support to children living in the UK with serious, rare and undiagnosed conditions. We believe every child has the right to a more marvellous life, no matter how ill they are, or how short their life may be. We focus upon helping those who have the biggest needs, and who aren't being fully supported by anybody else. This might be because they are living in poverty, or have no family at all.

Everyone's invited! Sign-up now and start planning your party. You can get a FREE phizz-whizzing party pack full of resources to make your Dahlicious Dress Up Day even more marvellous.

There's lots of information for parents too and you can find everything you need to know to prepare your child for the Dahlicious Dress Up Day. With bundles of tips, including making your own costumes at home from household materials, it has never been easier to make Big 7584dd59f1ad74adfbc9ce8460f2c927.jpgFriendly Giant ears, a Golden Ticket or a marvellous Matilda costume - you'll be spoilt for choice! So whether you have 10 days or 10 minutes, we've got lots of gloriumptious ideas for you and your child:

Children and their teachers love dressing up as their favourite Roald Dahl character and getting creative with their costumes.

"The children and staff have great fun dressing up, learning more about Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity and Roald Dahl. We can't wait to celebrate again."
