At CityBlock it’s that time of year where we begin to welcome all the new starters in their posh blazers, with their swanky new pencil cases and spit polished cheeks. Everywhere from our student accommodation in Lancaster to De Montfort University accommodation will be welcoming the sound of pen on paper and keyboard tapping as you begin your yearlong studying spate, but there’s a wee while yet, right?
So to ease you in to your first weeks we thought we would combine the celebration of a fantastic literary mind whilst simultaneously providing you with some recommended viewing… so, as the more social media-y amongst you may have noticed, yesterday was in fact Roald Dahl’s 99th birthday!
So, while the only way to truly honour the great man would be through reading one of his works, we thought after the long drive and time spent sorting your room out you’d probably want a film? Thought so! So grab yourself a snozzcumber and quit your whizpopping, and check out our list of some of the best Roald Dahl’s book-to-films ever made.
Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory (1971)
You Only Live Twice (1967)
So there we have it! Some of Dahl’s greatest on screen translations. Treat yourself by getting comfy in your new accommodation and indulging in a Roald Dahl-binge; we also recommend you get round to digging out your copy of one of his literary masterpieces, we’re sure you have a couple. What better way to start your new digs experience than cranking out a Dahl-creation.
In your opening few weeks we want you to feel comfortable; it’s your new home after all! So don’t hesitate to give us a call if you need anything or have any issues, you can always contact us on 01524 541251 – one our friendly team will be eagerly awaiting your call!
Go on then, get back to ya’ whizpopping:
