Interview with Fireball 2019 Room Head – Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

by Alex Mccubbin

A fabulous spread of every kind of sugary dessert you could imagine…a river made entirely of chocolate…these are only a few of the really cool visual treats from the movie version of Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory whose spirit Eisha Haroon and her partner Priya Gupta want to channel. Eisha and are Priya room heads and Eisha offered to give us a sneak peek into the room they are in charge of at this year’s Fireball.

The inspiration for the decoration of the room is based on the story Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. The book as well as the movie adaptions were equal inspirations for Eisha when choosing her room theme and she re watched the movie and re-read the book for ideas. The book was her favourite when she was a child so her theme holds a special place in her heart. She also thought that the wildly creative visual imagery of the movies, including elaborate desserts, was an interesting choice that provided many imaginative options and matched the scrumptious array of desserts that will be on display there. Eisha finds great joy in creativity and she loves creating something cool and meaningful. She loves being able to step back and see the final product and she loves when other people are in awe at the beauty of the assembled decorations. She hopes that when people see the room they will be transported to the world of Willy Wonka and his Chocolate factory and that it will make the evening magical.
