An icon turns 50! Celebrating 50 years of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Posted on Tuesday 2nd of September 2014 by Theme-Works

Can you believe it’s been 50 years since Roald Dahl’s widely-known Charlie and the Chocolate Factory first appeared in book stores across the globe?

Published in 1964, the famous story of Charlie Bucket, the five Golden Tickets, the Oompa-Loompas and the amazing Mr Willy Wonka has gone onto become perhaps Dahl’s best known title, with the first film-adaptation gracing our screen in 1971.

Charlie has been one of our firm favourites for theming for a number of years, and has also proved to be the most popular with our customers!

The theme opens up a world of possibility when it comes to decorating a space with beautiful draping and world props, and the Office Christmas team always has fun coming up with new and exciting ways to really push it to the limit!

Here is a selection of our favourite behind-the-scenes images taken on-site creating this fabulous theme.
