An exhibition celebrating the 101st anniversary of Roald Dahl's birth is on display in Lancaster.

It will highlight some lesser-known aspects of his life, and interesting facts about the books and their characters.

County Councillor Peter Buckley, Lancashire County Council's cabinet member for community and cultural services, said: "Anyone interested in Roald Dahl or his fabulous books, will find this really interesting.

"Roald is one of the world's best-loved children's authors, who has captured our imagination for many years. This exhibition is a really good opportunity to find out more about him."

Family friendly events will also run to support the exhibition from October to December.
