OOMPA Loompas, children and adults enjoyed a night watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory on a giant outdoor screen.
Enjoying food and drink outside, two Oompa Loompas made sure the weather did not dampen the filmgoers’ visit and a sign-language expert signed the entire film.
Peter Scopes, site manager, said: “Great films, great food and raising money for charity, to me seems like a perfect night out.”
The night, which included a screening of Grease, saw ticket money donated to the Essex Deaf Children’s Society and Macmillan Nurses.
Lucy Martin, from Essex Deaf Children’s Society, said: “We were over the moon when Festival Leisure Park chose the Essex Deaf Children’s Society as its charity.”
