Come join the mischief at Roald Dahl's City of the Unexpected this September!

Wales Millennium Centre
 and National Theatre Wales are on the hunt for a cast of 6,000

volunteers. Everyone is welcome, from choristers and magicians to brass bands, from heroic

firemen to officious bureaucrats, from Spitfire Pilots to Morris Minor drivers, from dinner ladies to

bald men, children to grandparents, aerialists, climbers, enthusiasts and dancers and a performing


Whoever you are, whatever you do, there's a role for you.

This September, Cardiff will celebrate the centenary of one of its most well known sons, Roald

Dahl, with an extraordinary weekend of magic and mayhem. The whole city will be humming with

whispers of Dahl; on street corners, on rooftops, in markets and cafés, on lampposts and even on

your mobile phone.

Dahl’s imagination has touched the most extraordinary number of people around the world. For

generations, he has been part of our bed times, our childhoods, and the development of our

imaginations. Now you can come and be part of his centenary: come and help us transform Cardiff

into a place that will unlock the child in everyone and create a city of wonder and surprise.
