Matt Buttell joins the hugely talented cast of Matilda at Cambridge Theatre - read the review
This month is Roald Dahl month, with the 13 September 2015 marking what would have been the author’s 99th birthday.
Based on his beloved book of the same name, Tim Minchin and Dennis Kelly's musical version of Matilda is a sight to behold.
