As Britain gears up to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Roald Dahl’s birth and in the run-up to the launch of the film adaption of The BFG, VisitBritain is showcasing to the world what makes Britain a GIANT - and family-friendly - tourism destination.
The national tourism organisation is today (Monday 20 June) launching an international ‘Where Giant Dreams come to Life’ film tourism campaign in its first-ever collaboration with Disney, producer of The BFG. The film, directed by Steven Spielberg and based on the book by Cardiff born author Roald Dahl, was filmed at locations across Britain including Blenheim Palace, London, the Isle of Skye and Bamburgh beach in Northumberland. The BFG film launches in the US on 1 July and in the UK on 22 July. 
  
VisitBritain’s
 £350,000 six-week digital and social media campaign showcases magical, mysterious and dreamlike moments that can only be experienced on a trip to Britain. The campaign features a set of exclusive images of giant landmarks in Britain including the Angel of the North, Big Ben, the Isle of Skye and the lions in Trafalgar Square. 
 
These images, and other giant visitor experiences across 
Britain, are being promoted across VisitBritain’s online and social media channels adapting its #OMGB (Oh My GREAT Britain) to ‘Oh My GIANT Britain.’ The campaign also wants people to upload their own images of ‘giant’ experiences and locations in Britain to their own social channels. 
 
VisitBri
tain/VisitEngland Chief Executive Sally Balcombe said: 
 
“Our collaboration with Disney on The BFG is a fantastic opportunity to promote to a global audience of millions an unexpected side of amazing, family-friendly moments that can only be experienced in Britain.

“By inspiring people to come and experience the best of ‘GIANT’ Britain we can drive growth from tourism and its economic benefits across all our nations and regions.” 

Ms Balcombe said that the link between tourism and film - ‘set-jetting’ - was “a potent one” with recent films delivering a real increase in visitor numbers. 

The 100th anniversary of Roald Dahl’s birth is 13 September 2016
