Roald Dahl

The spectacular Roald Dahl Festival takes places on Saturday 4th July in Aylesbury's Town Centre, and this year it's all about The Twits!

We're celebrating the Festival by giving away some great prizes, including a family trip to Ripleys Believe It Or Not!  London, where you'll see some equally intriguing people!

To win all you had to do was download our beard and decorate it it a Mr Twit style. Mr Twit had all sorts of yucky things in his beard, and our winner really took that to heart!

Congratulations to Teddy whose beard had rotten fish, old cornflakes, worms eggs and meatballs to name just a few!
