One of the UK’s most popular chocolate festival, ChocFest, returns to Melton Mowbray on 17-18 November 2018. At this year’s event, there will be some of the finest chocolate and associated food and drink products to taste and 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. New for this year is a dedicated Spirits Hall with gin, whisky, vodka, rum and liqueurs.

For those wanting to get hands-on, there are chocolate workshops, available to book in advance, for adults and kids with Leicestershire-based chocolatier, Nenette Chocolates. Learn how to make champagne truffles, just in time for Christmas. There will also be tutored tastings including gin and chocolate, and demonstrations in the ChocFest Theatre including a crab and white chocolate risotto by Master Chocolatier and Chef, David Greenwood-Haigh.

Matthew O’Callaghan from the Melton Mowbray Food Partnership, organiser of ChocFest said: “ChocFest is one of the few national food festivals dedicated to chocolate. We’ll have products available from some of the finest chocolatiers and related food and drink producers in the country at this year’s event. It’ll be a fantastic event to pick up some early Christmas presents, learn more about the art of chocolate making or simply come and enjoy the chocolate and other food and drink available.”

Tickets are £5 on the day (£4 in advance). Children under 16 enter free. Advance tickets are on sale from the Visit Leicester centre in Leicester and Ye Olde Pork Pie Shoppe in Melton Mowbray, or online from
