Who doesn’t get a chocolate craving every now and again? If you’re anything like us, it’s a daily occurrence, so news that York Chocolate Festival is back is music to our ears.
The organisers promise this year’s event (29 March-2 April), will be bigger and better than ever. Taking over Parliament Street in the city centre, it will feature craft chocolate makers, demonstrations and traders offering all kinds of treats from churros to liqueurs and chocolate pies.
There will also be hands on cookery for all the family, Little Vikings will be providing fun activities for children and there will be a fun fair in St Sampson’s Square.
It sounds like chocolate heaven to us – entry is free, with some ticketed activities. Watch this space for more information as we get it.
But if you can’t wait until the end of March for your chocolate fix, we’ve got you. York has been the UK’s home of chocolate for almost 300 years so there’s no shortage of places to sample. Try Monk Bar Chocolatiers or York Cocoa House, and not forgetting of course, the city’s very own chocolate museum, York’s Chocolate Story.
