#BeAHero with BBC Children In Need


This competition is now closed.

In aid of this year’s BBC Children In Need, the hit new musical Charlie and the Chocolate Factory are holding a special Gala performance on Thursday 7th November, hosted by none other than Sir Terry Wogan.


This sugary show is a fantastical adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic tale of the same name. Poor Charlie Bucket wins a chance in a lifetime to venture beyond the gates of the wonderfully weird Wonka Chocolate Factory where everything must be believed to be seen. This mouthwatering musical stars Olivier and Tony Award-winning actor Douglas Hodge as the wacky Willy Wonka, alongside Nigel Planer as Grandpa Joe and a host of other stars.

Children In Need is the BBC’s UK corporate charity, aiming to make a difference to the lives of children throughout the UK. Every penny raised goes towards helping disadvantaged children and young people, changing their lives for the better. At least 50% from each Charlie and the Chocolate Factory ticket sold for this special performance goes straight to Children In Need.
