- Brighton Chocolate Festival
Indulge your senses during the Brighton Chocolate Festival weekend and discover a selection of chocolate-themed exhibitors, including award-winning chocolatiers & chocolate makers. We will be highlighting sustainable, ethical products, with traceability, and made with human compassion for those who work in the cocoa fields to bring this luxury item to market. Chocolate is naturally vegan and gluten-free so we will have a selection of chocolatiers and chocolate makers who offer their products to suit varied diets and requests. The onus is on good quality chocolate being used in our exhibitors' produce, so if you are also looking to completely indulge your passion you will find an extensive selection of milk, white and dark chocolates. Visitors eager to learn more about chocolate production, where the cocoa beans are sourced, and why it is vital to maintain and support the cocoa farmers will be able to talk to our exhibitors throughout the weekend. We offer an easy education, as well as a wider chocolate choice so that you can make informed decisions on your purchases. For full details check the festival website: https://brightonchocolatefestival.com/exhibitors How will we travel to Brighton? You can choose your own method of transport if you live outside of Brighton. I'll take the train from London Bridge which is £12.20 (less if we travel together as there is a 33% off offer for 3 or more people travel together). Admission It's free of charge to visit the festival.
- Chocolate sharing
Bring a chocolate you like and we will share it. The event is limited to 10 people as you can’t really taste more than 10 chocolate in one evening to my opinion. Please bring a special chocolate and not something off the nearest Aldi or Tesco. The event will probably take place in Southbank centre. When you RSVP don’t forget to answer the question to provide your mobile number. No number means No RSVP.

15 minutes chocolate tasting sessions, stating at 4pm, 4:20pm and 4:40pm so come to one of those. It's organised by Terese F Weiss from Chocolate Unpacked.
