Magic of Roald Dahl cheers hopsital kids

Sir Quentin Blake and Felicity Dahl unveil stunning stained glass project

Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity 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. Sir Quentin has donated his instantly-recognisable designs to the hospital to be created in a stained-glass window installation – the first-time his work has ever been produced in stained-glass. The original illustration was unveiled at a special event attended by Felicity Dahl and close friend, actress Joanna Lumley and other guests.
