Fairtrade Fortnight: Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory Screening

March 5th

To coincide with Fairtrade Fortnight 2019, we’ll be teaming up with FAIR. Spirits & Propercorn to host an evening of guilt-free chocolate appreciation.

We’ll be getting stuck into all-time classic, Mel Stuart’s Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory, to transport you to a world of pure imagination.

Despite a glittering and award-winning performance by lead man Gene Wilder, this rendition of Roald Dahl’s most well-known work received mixed reviews upon release.

It has gone on to enjoy a cult status thanks to a spike in interest and popularity during the 1980s, and is now rightfully considered one of the finest works of fantastical fiction the big screen has ever seen.

The melodic soundtrack, beautiful sets, and endearing performances by a young and eclectic supporting cast makes Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory an enjoyable ride from start to glass-elevator finish.

Continuing the chocolatey themes, as well as a traditional FAIR-based complimentary cocktail to enjoy, guests will also be treated to snacks in the form of Propercorn’s Perivian chocolate-soaked popcorn.

Tickets are £15 for one, or £20 for a pair using the code ‘goldenticket’ at checkout. Complimentary cocktail and free snacks courtesy of Propercorn included.

Fancy a Fairtrade feast to cap off your evening? This screening will be closely followed by a 3-course chocolate-themed supper club courtesy of culinary up-and-comer Yianni D’Gama. Click here for details.
