The highly anticipated film Wonka is arriving at screens across the UK and in Bolton this weekend.

And to celebrate, Vue Cinema is offering film fans the chance to get their hands on a tasty treat to mark the occasion for free - a Wonka inspired bubblegum tango ice blast.

However, the freebie comes with a wonderfully Wonka-inspired catch. To be eligible for the freebie, Wonka ticket holders must first order a tango ice blast while wearing a green wig like those donned by the chocolatier’s Oompa-Loompa helpers.

An appropriate gift, given Vue is launching a limited-edition Bubblegum tango ice blast flavour, inspired by the iconic character.

The new flavour of this much-loved frozen drink will be available exclusively at Vue with Bolton's Middlebrook site included.

The promotion will run across all Vue venues during the film’s opening weekend, Friday, December 8  to Sunday. 

All times for the Bolton showings can be found here.

Toby Bradon, general manager of Vue UK and Ireland, said: ‘The arrival of Wonka this weekend is the perfect start to the festive season.

"We’re thrilled to be making the arrival that extra bit special at Vue by launching a marvellous bubblegum flavoured tango ice blast."
