THE FILM Willy Wonka and the chocolate factory (1971)
The world is astounded when Willy Wonka, for years a recluse in his factory, announces that five lucky people will be given a tour of the factory, shown all the secrets of his amazing candy, and one will win a lifetime supply of Wonka chocolate. Nobody wants the prize more than young Charlie, but as his family is so poor that buying even one bar of chocolate is a treat, buying enough bars to find one of the five golden tickets is unlikely in the extreme. But in movieland, magic can happen. Charlie, along with four somewhat odious other children, get the chance of a lifetime and a tour of the factory. Along the way, mild disasters befall each of the odious children, but can Charlie beat the odds and grab the brass ring?
STREET FEAST We're helping to launch Street Feast, the nationwide day of street parties & local lunches that takes place this year on 15th June. Over the past 5 years thousands of people across the country have taken to the streets to share food with their community. They can be anywhere really — out on the street, in a local park or in your front garden. www.streetfeast.ie
