A World of Pure Cancellation: A tour around the disastrous Glasgow Wonka event in 11 photos

Here's a tour around the Glasgow Wonka event in 11 pictures as outraged families demand refunds

Over the weekend a disastrous event held in Glasgow has went viral after organisers were forced to cancel thanks to backlash from families who paid up to £35 a ticket to a 'Wonka-inspired' event.

Held at the Box Hub Warehouse in Whiteinch, children were crying and the Police were called after families showed up to a sparsely decorated concrete warehouse which saw mis-matching props scattered around a grey concrete warehouse.

Willy's Chocolate Experience didn't deliver on what they promised, using AI artwork to illustrate a bright and beautiful wonderland, but were met with a brutal grey concrete warehouse akin to a post-ironic exhibition by a Glasgow School of Art student.

Organised by House of Illuminati, an events company set up at the end of last year by self-styled Glasgow businessman Billy Coull, you can read more about the strange background of the company and the story that led up to the event here.

The event has went viral across social media, with people as far as the USA making fun of the decor as the world takes turns laughing at the disastrous event. Today we wanted to take a look around the event from photos on social media to see just how good value for money 'Willy's Chocolate Experience' really was.
