James & The Giant Peach (U): Saturday 11th August, 2pm – 5pm

A gloriumptious afternoon for all the family in Great Missenden, the heart of Roald Dahl country. Join the crews from the Roald Dahl Museum and Blue Door Cinema for a special screening of James and the Giant Peach, with free storytelling, facepainting and craft activities. There’ll be a cash bar, peachy treats from the Museum Café and books, gifts and toys from the Museum Shop. [After the screening, pick up a Village Trail and explore the places that inspired Roald Dahl and feature in the stories.]

Featuring stop-motion animation and live action, this inventive adaptation of Roald Dahl’s beloved tale follows the adventures of orphaned James (Paul Terry) who is forced to live with his cruel aunts Spiker and Sponge (Joanna Lumley, Miriam Margolyes). He manages to escape from his bleak existence with the help of an enormous enchanted peach which starts to grow in the aunts’ garden. After rolling into the sea inside the buoyant fruit, James, accompanied by a crew of friendly talking insects, sets sail for New York City.
