If you are a chocoholic, or you know someone that is, then you cannot afford to miss this event, and snap up some Christmas treats into the bargain!

The Chocolate Festival returns to Southbank Centre this Christmas time with even more chocolatiers and Christmas gift ideas. Just in time for Christmas shopping, the popular festival runs from Friday 10th– Sunday 12th December. This event will feature stands from award winning chocolatiers such as William Curley, Damian Allsop, Paul Wayne Gregory and Co-Couture, renowned chocolate companies such as Rococo, Valrhona and Hotel Chocolat, as well as new companies such as Choki of Brockley and Simply Hand Made Chocolates.

The Christmas Chocolate Festival will consist of a chocolate-fashion display (location TBC) which will include chocolate icing works by artist Beth Cust (as seen above) as well as fabulous chocolate dresses.

As always, demonstrations, tastings and talks will take place in the main marquee, where attendees can learn about the health benefits of chocolate, how to include chocolate in savoury dishes as well as tutored tastings. As always there will be dozens of stalls all showcasing chocolate and chocolate products, such as hot chocolate, chocolate cakes, crepes with chocolate, churros with chocolate, a chocolate fountain, chocolate making kits and much more.

If you are a chocoholic, or you know someone that is, then you cannot afford to miss this event, and snap up some Christmas treats into the bargain!
