Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory

Sunday 31st August 2014 at 1pm - The Annesley Hall, Newcastle

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of one of the world’s most popular children’s books, “Charlie & The Chocolate Factory”, Newcastle Arts Festival are teaming up with Newcastle Community Cinema to bring you an unbelievable afternoon of Wonka based wonderment!

To accompany a screening of the original film starring Gene Wilder, we will be transforming the Annesley Hall into a fully themed Chocolate Factory funderland, complete with plenty of surprises for our little guests during the afternoon. Fizzy lifting drinks, everlasting gobstoppers, lickable wallpaper, can such wondrous goodies actually come to life? There will be plenty of magical workshops and play area for our little Oompa Loompas to explore, (maybe with one or two sweet treats thrown in!), before NCC show the timeless film on the big screen.

This event is FREE! To apply for tickets please email: wonka@newcastlecinema.org
