Calling all chocoholics out there, a brand-spanking new choccy fest is coming to Birmingham and you seriously need to know about it. The festival will be doing a complete tour of the UK and will be stopping off in Birmingham too.

The festival will fulfil your wildest chocolate dreams with fountains, statues and fondues, as well as Willy Wonka inspired characters to keep the kids (and big kids) entertained all day. It will host some of the UK’s top confectioners and is guaranteed to be a delicious day out. And if the chocolate wasn’t enough, alcoholic milkshakes, hot chocolate and cocktails will also be available.

There will be creative chocolate-themed workshops on offer, including an arts and crafts station and chocolate sculpting, plus the opportunity to hit up the free themed photo booths for a souvenir to take away.

The event will be a day of delectable confectionary, singalong live music and chocolatiers. You can stock up on the good stuff for your family and friends. For the young ones, there will be an arts and crafts station with chocolate egg decorating and a chocolate tasting experience, as well as a chocolate factory play zone.

Included with your ticket is a Cotton Chocolate Festival bag to collect your goodies, The Fantastical Chocolate Festival mug and a sweet or savoury skewer for dipping in the chocolate fountains.
