THE Dukes in Lancaster is thinking big this Christmas, as it celebrates 40 years of entertaining families.

One of Roald Dahl’s most popular characters – The BFG – will stride on to The Dukes stage from this Friday (November 25) to Saturday, January 7.

The story of The BFG itself reaches a milestone in 2012, the 30th anniversary of its publication.

It was inspired by Dahl’s granddaughter Sophie, who went on to become a model and TV presenter.
