Saffron Hall: Roald Dahl's The BFG

FUNharmonics family concert

2:00 PM, ​ Saffron Hall, Saffron Walden

Are you ready to take on the ghastly Fleshlumpeater and his terrible giant friends to stop them guzzling human beans? Join the BFG and his sidekick Sophie as they concoct a marvellous plan to stop the giants from galloping all over the world to gobble up humans as they sleep.

Experience Sophie's wonder as she explores the BFG's life in Giant Country, his expertise in dream catching and his unique diet of disgusterous snozzcumbers and sweet, jumbly frobscottle.

In this family concert, Roald Dahl's much-loved story The BFG, adapted for performance by award-winning writer and Olivier nominee Hattie Naylor, will be brought to life by BAFTA Award-winning actor Katherine Parkinson and the London Philharmonic Orchestra playing well-known pieces to support the action of this wonderful tale.
