These FREE to download programme notes are the perfect accompaniment to Roald Dahl on Film screenings.

For the family films, we asked young film fans to describe their favourite adaptations and draw their favourite characters. For the grown-ups, Darrell Buxton (Cult Film Historian) has provided his unique interpretation of why Roald Dahl is such a great storyteller for all ages.

Find out more about where to catch these and other Roald Dahl films in our What's On section.
