Chocolate Festival: December 13 -15, 11am – 8pm (6pm on Sunday): FREE

Every chocoholic deserves a visit to The Chocolate Festival. Join the chocolate-mad team and savour the creations of the world’s finest chocolatiers – both from Britain and beyond.

This year, they’re joined by award-winning names Marc Demarquette, Paul A. Young, Barry Johnson, and Damian Allsop.

You’ll discover dozens of stalls showcasing artisan produced chocolate made from pure ingredients. Here’s the perfect place to snap up treats for discerning friends and family. Of course, shopping is a hungry business – so feel free to treat yourself to the many delights on offer. You’ll find everything from hot chocolate to chocolate cakes, chocolate churros to chocolate pretzels, chocolate chilli to chocolate cocktails.

Indulgence is good for you. It’s official. At the festival you’ll learn about the goodness of real chocolate. There’s free tutored tasting sessions, lessons on how to create your own chocolate – and you could drop in at a Masterclass cookery demonstration and pick up recipes to make your dinner guests drool.
