Like the very best Advent calendars, The Chocolate Festival will be packed full of surprises, gifts and chocolates. Exhibitors include Rococo, Valrhona, Original Beans, William Curley, Damian Allsop, Paul Wayne Gregory, Sir Hans Sloane, Paul A Young, L’Artisan Du Chocolat and many more.

Visitors will not only have the opportunity to eat and shop (indulging in treats such as chocolate chilli, chocolate beer, chocolate macarons, fudge and chocolate cakes) but can chat to some of the UK’s top chocolatiers and learn about different aspects of chocolate, including health benefits, uses and how to taste like a professional.

A series of free tutored tastings, talks and demonstrations will be available in the Chocolate Cookery Theatre, coordinated by renowned chef and culinary expert Valentina Harris. The Spring Chocolate Festivals held in London and at spots around the UK this year had over 100,000 visitors, and it is expected The Christmas Chocolate Festival at Southbank will be even more popular.

A full list of all events and exhibitors will be announced on The Chocolate Festival website
