Laura Dockrill reads The Pig by Roald Dahl

Each year, the Southbank Centre hosts the Imagine Children's Festival; a ten days of events and activities specifically for children. Ahead of the 2010 edition of Imagine..., we asked a number of writers and artists to read their favourite poem from their own childhood for us. 

Author, illustratr and performance poet Laura Dockrill was one of our very willing volunteers. And she chose to read Roald Dahl's The Pig.

So, are you sitting comfortably?

Sadly, for everyone’s safety, our venues are currently closed. But you can still get your Southbank Centre fix online. We will continue to share inspiring and thought-provoking arts stories through our website and social channels.

As a charity, we rely on ticket sales for a huge chunk of our income. But now they’ve stopped. And it's a huge worry to us, and the people we work with. We all need the escape of art and culture; it can inspire and unite us. So please – if you can afford to – consider a donation to the Southbank Centre today, to help us be there for you in the future.
