Based on the iconic story, this spectacular stage show follows the hit West End and Broadway productions to combine the memorable songs from the original 1970’s motion picture (‘The Candy Man’ and ‘Pure Imagination’) with all new numbers from the multi-award-winning songwriters of Hairspray.
When Charlie Bucket finds one of the five golden tickets to the Wonka Chocolate Factory, he and the other winners can’t wait to feast on the sweets of their dreams. But beyond the gates, they discover more than just remarkable edible delights. As they embark on an extraordinary journey through Willy Wonka’s marvellous mind, they soon learn that nobody leaves the same way that they arrived…
The weird and wonderful world of Roald Dahl’s Charlie and The Chocolate Factory – The Musical will dazzle your senses in its first-ever UK & Ireland Tour.

All told, my friend Lynne and I really enjoyed our visit to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Whilst, as I have said, the first act has issues for me, the second really lifts the show up and takes you in the great glass elevator on a ride you’ll remember for a long, long time.
