competition film review Roald Dahl crafts

Win a copy of The BFG and Family Golden Ticket to the Roald Dahl Museum!

This week the digitally restored and first widescreen release of The BFG The Movie was released on DVD and Blu-ray. I love Roald Dahl books and The BFG was always one of my favourites. It was strange sitting down to watch a film from my childhood with the toddler but he loved it so I will be off to the library to find some Roald Dahl books to read together. To celebrate the release of the film I have a lovely competition for you, where you can win a copy of The BFG and Family Golden Ticket to the Roald Dahl Museum, details below.

The BFG The Movie is available to own on DVD and Blu-ray since Monday. To celebrate the launch there are some BFG activities which your little ones are bound to enjoy which you can download here. There are also some fun activities across Facebook and Twitter, don’t forget to take a look at The BFG’s Giant Country app where you can turn yourself into a GIANT!

    I always loved the BFG himself – he was so big and jumbly and because I lost both grandfathers at such a young age (so I had no memory of them) – he was kind of like the grandfather I imagined to have! All big and friendly!
