The Duke of Hampshire has a problem: he just can’t seem to keep the 677 windows of his mansion clean! Fortunately, Roald Dahl’s trio of enterprising characters have the answer! The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me has been brought to life in inimitable musical fashion by Dahl’s biographer, Donald Sturrock, and the brilliantly imaginative composer Peter Ash. Join the Cambridge Phil and a very special guest for an hour of musical fun – and, if you like, come to the concert dressed as your favourite Roald Dahl character!
