The Magic of Roald Dahl Comes to Birmingham Children’s Hospital
Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity has teamed up with Sir Quentin Blake, the world-famous children’s illustrator, and Felicity Dahl to bring the magic of Roald Dahl’s most iconic characters permanently to the hospital for patients, visitors and staff to enjoy.
Renowned for having illustrated Roald Dahl’s globally-beloved books, Sir Quentin has generously donated his instantly-recognisable designs to the hospital to be created in a stunning, stained-glass window installation – the first-time Sir Quentin’s work has ever been produced in stained-glass. , and the original illustration was unveiled at a special event (on Thursday 12 September) attended by Felicity Dahl and her dear friend Joanna Lumley OBE, and other guest.
To bring the world-first display to life, Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity needs to raise £234,000. Once raised, the unique and vibrant installation will be housed inside Waterfall House, the hospital’s new state-of-the-art building, home to its world-class Children’s Cancer Centre and the UK’s first Rare Diseases Centre for children.
