A chocolate festival is coming to a city near you


Share This Article:

Summer might be coming to an end, but festival season isn’t – and this is one everybody can get behind.

Dark chocolate and raspberry

The Fantastical Chocolate Festival

The Fantastical Chocolate Festival is touring the UK throughout the autumn and winter, and is bringing everything chocolate right to your front door. Chocolate fountains? Check. Chocolate fondues? Check. Artisanal chocolatiers? Definitely check. Basically, if you like chocolate (and who doesn’t like chocolate?) this is the festival for you.

The tour is being organised by the same people as The Great British Gin Festival and Rum & Reggae Festival, with the twist this time being that this is going to be much more family friendly. There will be crafts and chocolate tasting for young and old alike, making this a great family day out. Or, if you’re going with friends, find the naughtier side of the festival, with chocolate booze for sale - have you ever heard of a better combination of words?!

Unsurprisingly, tickets are selling incredibly fast for this tour, with extra dates already added in Liverpool, Manchester and Cardiff. If you’ve blown your savings on Reading, Download or Creamfields, you’ll also find this to be a much more purse-friendly festival: each day is split into two sessions, with adult tickets costing from £9 (plus booking fee) per session.

Chocolate cakes and donuts

The Fantastical Chocolate Festival

Even better, this is the festival which comes to you. Given that the UK consumes a staggering 660,900 tonnes of chocolate every year, it’s only right that the tour is covering the country from top to bottom, from Liverpool to London, Glasgow to Cheltenham. The aim is to visit over 40 cities, bringing candy floss, ice-cream and bubble waffles to a location near you from late 2018 and into 2019.
