Buy Tickets For Charlie And The Chocolate FactoryBuy Tickets

The mysterious Willy Wonka is opening his Chocolate Factory for just one day, and for Charlie Bucket it promises to be a mouth-watering chance to feast his eyes on sweets beyond his wildest imagination.

Skyfall director Sam Mendes helms this incredibly successful musical, with music by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (whose previous work includes the Broadway and London smash hit Hairspray) with a book by David Greig.

As Roald Dahl's most famous novel, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was first published in 1964 in the US and in the UK in 1967 and has been adapted into two films; Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory in 1971 starring Gene Wilder, and Tim Button's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in 2005 starring Johnny Depp.
