To commemorate the centenary of Roald Dahl this year, we’re doing something very special.

When Roald Dahl was just 10 years old he wrote his first story, The Kumbak II. Kept hidden away for years in his family , until now. For a short period of time we are showing this story, but not in a conventional way. For your chance to read this beautiful tale, in its original handwritten manuscript form head over to 168-178 Shoreditch High Street, until September 11th, where you can marvel at The Kumbak II in all its glory.
