Get ready for Christmas 2017 at 2nd annual ChocFest

Melton Mowbray will be the place for chocolate lovers this November when the annual ChocFest event returns to the town. 

At this year’s ChocFest, there will tastings, demonstrations, talks, workshops and plenty of chocolate and associated food and drink to buy from some of the UK’s best local producers.

Exhibitors will be offering chocolates, chocolate cakes, pies, crepes, brownies, tarts, liqueurs, doughnuts, macarons, desserts, marshmallows, biscuits and even chocolate pizzas, kebabs, moonshine, mead, wine and beer. Other stands will be selling cakes, pies, champagne, wine and other goods in the run up to Christmas.

All under cover with plenty of hot chocolate, mulled wine and spiced cider in case it gets cold! Visitors can also book our very popular chocolate workshops to get hands on experience on how to make their own chocolates – just in time for Christmas.

Tickets are priced at £5 (£4 in advance). Children under 16 enter free.
