  • A woman with glasses and in a blue shirt and skirt is pulling an excited face a while she uses an old printing machine. A man with glasses to her right in a shirt and waistcoat is looking down at the machine and assisting.

A fun-filled family show inspired by the works of Roald Dahl.

All around the world Roald Dahlʼs words are disappearing, not only from books but children’s minds too! Now only a secret organisation known as the Ancient Guild of TaleTenders can save the stories - and they need your help...

Join Terry Tibblestick from the Ancient Guild of TaleTenders and his assistant Brenda Bogg. We learn all about what taletending involves and how to look after stories. TaleTenders have existed since the beginning of time and their one job is to remember and recall all the words of their storyteller-but maybe Terry hasn't been as diligent as he could have been?

Follow Brenda's journey as she reveals her discovery of the missing words, sparking danger that they are being eaten by the dreaded Wurblegobblers. Help her as she tries to convince Terry of the real and present danger the stories are in as she challenges him to see if he’s been protecting and preserving the stories, as she tries to restore the words to the books using imagination, play and a heart full of tenderness.

Especially made for ages 5 and up, the show develops both creative and literacy skills through performance, games, and creative play, while exploring Roald Dahl’s extraordinary stories, including The BFG and The Twits along the way.
