Explore Roald Dahl's Childhood Church in Cardiff
A programme of events to celebrate the centenary of Welsh born author and the world’s number one story teller, Roald Dahl in 2016 has been announced from the Norwegian Church in Cardiff Bay, where Roald Dahl was baptised.
The Roald Dahl 100 celebrations coincide with ‘Wales: Year of Adventure’ in 2016 and Roald Dahl himself was no stranger to adventure, as a child getting up to well-documented mischief in the local sweetshop in Llandaff or as a young pilot during World War Two
With its attractive white painted clapboard structure and stubby spire the Norwegian Church provides a striking counterpoint to the modern buildings in the glitzy Cardiff Bay Development. The oldest surviving church in Britain founded by the Norwegian Seamens’ mission, these days it’s an arts centre and café. Its wooden decked terrace is a perfect spot for munching Norwegian-style snacks whilst you admire views across the bay.
