Based on the unforgettable character created by Roald Dahl in his book, 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory', 'Wonka' tells the story of a young Willy Wonka and his dreams of opening a chocolate shop.

If all the talk of chocolate has you tempted, drinks and sweet treats will be available to buy from The Little Green Truck Company. You are also welcome to bring your own picnic.

The Gatehouse Tower will be open for you to explore from 6.30pm, and then settle down as the sun sets with the film starting at around 7.30pm.
