City Of the Unexpected
In September 2016, more than 120,000 people attended Wales’ largest ever cultural event, staged to celebrate the centenary of Roald Dahl.
The Welsh capital – where Roald Dahl was born on 13 September 1906 – became a place where reality was turned on its head, and where the laws of physics, logic and the predictable gave way to magic, fun, invention and the surreal, as if Dahl himself was at the helm. Participants and audience members immersed themselves in everything from large-scale events to intimate performances – all staged across Cardiff’s streets and public spaces, in shops and arcades, at iconic buildings and parks.
