To celebrate 100 years since the birth of Roald Dahl, Tatton Park, the official Roald Dahl 100 partner, is holding a Roald Dahl's Tremendous Adventures throughout the year. We've been chosen to be one of the bloggers to bring you all the news about the fantastic Roald Dahl 100 activities at Tatton Park, and there might be an opportunity for you to win a family pass to go there yourself too! So keep your eyes out for my Roald Dahl's Tremendous Adventures at Tatton Park posts!

Tatton Park works closely with the Roald Dahl Literary Estate and legendary illustrator Quentin Blake for the year-long programme of events at the park, but there are other Roald Dahl 100 activities as well, including the launch of a new David Austin rose named in Roald Dahl's honour at the Chelsea Flower Show in Mar and City of the Unexpected - a birthday weekend celebration in Roald Dahl's home city of Cardiff in September.
