We were incredibly lucky to have a visit from Roald Dahl’s friend and biographer Donald Sturrock on Thursday 13th October, on his way to the Cheltenham Literature Festival. It was so interesting to hear what Roald Dahl was really like as a person- he told us stories about meeting Dahl and even having dinner with him at Gypsy Cottage when he passed around a mysterious object which turned out to be his hip bone!! We were able to ask him all kinds of questions that we couldn’t have found out from books… he was impressed that we were such Roald Dahl experts!
