More shocking pictures emerge of ‘shambles’ Willy Wonka experience that police were called to

More shocking pictures emerge of ‘shambles’ Willy Wonka experience that police were called to

Attendees have been left furious by the 'experience'

More pictures from a shambolic 'Willy Wonka experience' have emerged online as the drama surrounding the event continues.

Hundreds of kids were left devastated over the weekend when a Glasgow event promising to turn 'dreams into reality' ended in tears, chaos, and even the police being called.

Families booking the £35-per-head event were told to look forward to a 'chocolate fantasy like never before' based on Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka.

The event left a lot to be desired.

But when they turned up at the venue, they were shocked to find an 'abandoned, empty warehouse', while others described the event, which was scheduled to take place over Saturday and Sunday, as 'absolutely appalling' and a 'waste of money'.

According to attendees, there were a few Wonka-themed props littered about and a small bouncy castle.

Meanwhile, refreshments went as far as what looks like a bottle of lemonade split between the entire attendees and pick n mix consisting of five sweets.

There were some props dotted around.

Some people even claim to have been given a totally different address to where the 'event' was being held.

The organiser, House of Illuminati, promised big things ahead of the event, but ultimately had to cancel on the day. Organisers have since apologised for the chaos.

Dad Dan Stuart, who attended the event, told Sky News: "I've never seen anything like it. It was definitely an 'experience'."

Another disappointed visitor, Eva Stewart, told the BBC: "It was basically advertised as this big massive Willy Wonka experience with optical illusions and big chocolate fountains and sweets.

The sweets were pretty sparse.

"But when we got there, it was practically an abandoned, empty warehouse, with hardly anything in it."

Now, further pictures are emerging from attendees, who have even set up a Facebook group titled 'House of Illuminati scam'.

In one image, police can be seen outside the venue, while others show the warehouse looking pretty sparse with a few props dotted here and there.

Another photograph shows a sign from outside the venue, which reads 'Event cancelled by House of Illuminati' followed by an email address to contact and 'sorry'.

Lemonade was not in plentiful supply.

House of Illuminati said in a Facebook post later that evening: "Today has been a very stressful and frustrating day for many and for that we are truly sorry.

"Unfortunately last minute we were let down in many areas of our event and tried our best to continue on and push through and now realise we probably should have cancelled first thing this morning instead.

"We fully apologise for what has happened and will be giving full refunds to each and every person that purchased tickets."

Things got so bad that the police were called.

Billy Coull, the director of events company House of Illuminati, has also issued an apology of his own, saying to STV: I’m really shocked that the event had fallen short of the expectations of people on paper.

"My vision of the artistic rendition of a well known book didn’t come to fruition. For that I am absolutely truly and utterly sorry.

"There was every intention to hold the event, from the pictures, despite not being in the best light hopefully you’ll be able to see that there was every intention to hold the event."

The event was cancelled in the end.

He continued: "Unfortunately there was unforeseen circumstances and the event didn’t come to light. These issues were technological in nature.

"We had ordered a holographic paper that didn’t arrive on time. The holographic technology in itself is absolutely fabulous technology and unfortunately there was a delay in postage."

LADbible has contacted House of Illuminati for further comment.
