All around the world Roald Dahl’s words are disappearing, not only from books but children’s minds too! Now, only a secret organisation known as the Ancient Guild of Tale Tenders can save the stories – and they need your help…
Join Terry Tibblestick from the ancient guild of Taletenders and his assistant Brenda Bogg. Taletenders have existed since the beginning of time and their one job is to remember and recall all the words of their storyteller. But maybe Terry hasn’t been as diligent as he could have been?  
Follow Brenda’s journey as she reveals her discovery of the missing words, sparking danger that they are being eaten by the dreaded Wurblegobblers. Help her as she  tries to convince Terry of the real and present danger the stories are in. She challenges him to see if he’s been protecting and preserving the stories as she tries to restore the words to the books using imagination, play and a heart full of tenderness.
This is an immersive and interactive performance, involving games and imaginative play, while exploring Roald Dahlʼs extraordinary stories, including The BFG and The Twits along the way.
Recommended age 6-10 years.
Presented as part of Derby Book Festival.
