Indooroopilly Shopping Centre will celebrate the 100th birthday of legendary children’s author Roald Dahl with a range of school holiday activities.

Pretty much everybody grew up with a favourite Roald Dahl story.

Best known for books like James and the Giant Peach, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Fantastic Mr Fox, Matilda and The BFG, Dahl is widely considered one of the greatest children’s storytellers of all time — and even if you’ve never read one of his books, you’ve almost certainly seen one of the film adaptations.

Steven Spielberg’s The BFG, the latest film to be adapted from one of the author’s works, will be released on Thursday 30 June.

To celebrate the release, as well as the centenary of Dahl’s birth, Indooroopilly Shopping Centre is setting up an educational and fun BFG-inspired activity zone for kids to enjoy on Level 1 of the Centre, near Gourmet Fresh.

The activity zone will have craft activities for kids to engage with, as well as a reading corner and exciting The BFG giveaways.

The activity zone is recommended for kids aged 5 and older, and no bookings or appointments are necessary. It’ll be open from 11am to 2pm daily, from Tuesday 5 to Saturday 9 July.

The centre is also offering a meal deal to tie in with the film’s release. From Thursday 30 June to Saturday 9 July, moviegoers who see The BFG at Event Cinemas Indooroopilly will receive a free $10 lunch voucher.

You’ll just need to present your movie tickets to the Concierge Desk on Level 2 of the centre to receive your voucher, which can be redeemed at participating restaurants, cafes and food outlets throughout the centre.

There’ll be a limit of one voucher per person thoughout the campaign, while stocks last.
