During the run up to Easter, Chocoholics will be able to get their fix at 3 separate festivals.

New Road, Brighton, Broad Street, Oxford and Southbank Centre, London, will be transformed into a chocolate lover’s paradise, with a selection of stalls selling and sampling chocolate in all its forms, from warming hot chocolate to artisan truffles – and even chocolate chilli!
