Escape to a world of pure imagination with Roald Dahl’s Charlie and The Chocolate Factory – The Musical which is on stage at the Mayflower Theatre in Southampton from August 16 to September 3.

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 1970s 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, Charlie and the other winners cannot 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 nobody leaves the same way they arrived.

The weird and wonderful world of Roald Dahl’s Charlie and The Chocolate Factory – The Musical will dazzle your senses when it plays the Mayflower as part of its first ever UK and Ireland tour. Every ticket is golden!

There are performances at 2pm and 7pm and ticket prices range from £20 to £75.
