The Chocolate FestivalJust in time to stock up on goodies for Christmas, The Chocolate Festival returns to Southbank Centre with an array of chocolatiers and artisan delights to tickle your taste buds. Create Christmas chocolates at a free workshop with Scandinavian chef Trine Hahnemann, or learn how to make beauty products from cocoa butter, and be sure to leave with bulging bags choc full of gifts for sweet-toothed friends and family. There will be tons of demonstrations, tastings and talks from the best in the business including a Masters of Chocolate Afternoon with Paul A. Young, Damian Allsop and Chantal Coady. As always, there will be dozens of stalls all showcasing chocolate and chocolate products, such as hot chocolate, chocolate cakes, crepes, churros, a chocolate fountain, self-making kits and much more. If you are a chocoholic, or you know someone who is, then you simply cannot afford to miss this event. It takes place at the Southbank Centre on 7th, 8th (11am-8pm) and 9th (11am-6pm) of December and admission is free!

 

About Southbank Centre

London's hub of cultural arts, The Southbank Centre announced in March 2013 that it's set for a £100 million revamp that will see the 1960s design finally move into the 21st century with a proposal that includes a floating glass pavilion, two more roof gardens, a space for riverside arts and a large pedestrian area.
