Melton Mowbray ChocFest - 2016
The 2016 ChocFest took place in November.
Almost 4,000 people attended Melton’s ChocFest – a celebration of all things chocolate. Visitors were able to sample and buy a wide variety of chocolate treats including crepes, cakes, macaroons, biscuits besides of course chocolates. Firm favourite with the kids were the chocolate pizzas which they decorated themselves. Dunkley’s ran out of this treat by end of play on Saturday having sold out of their entire 500 pizza stock. The workshops, organised by Leicester’s Cocoa-Amore, were also popular the 200 places being sold out in advance
Organiser Matthew O’Callaghan of the Melton Mowbray Partnership said; “It was a cracking event, with traders doing very brisk business and visitors spoilt for choice by the quality and variety of what was on offer. We had visitors from as far as London to the event. If it hadn’t been for the rain and forecast of bad weather we’d have easily cleared the 5,000 visitor mark.”
