A Festival full of Chocolatey Fun

posted Aug 24, 2011, 3:09 AM by Sophie Jewett
Once again we are very proud to be working with York Festival of Food and Drink to create some chocolatey indulgent events and activities for visitors and residents to take part in. York Festival of Food and Drink is firmly set in the calendar as the most spectacular of Food Festivals, lasting 10 days from Friday 16th September to Sunday 25th September the city will be full of smells of the most amazing foods. 

It's hard to believe that just 2 years ago we launched Little Pretty Things at York Food Festival in September 2009, so much chocolatey fun has happened since then, we just get so excited when the time comes around again, and delighted to be supporting the festival with our chocolate wares. This year we will be running a number of chocolate workshops, some have small entrance fees involved and some are completely free for you to come and join in the chocolate fun, and when the evenings are starting to get darker, what could be better than chocolate to give you that sense of comfort?

We'll also be opening up the Little Pretty Things Chocolate Parlour at the Festival this year, open from Friday 16th September - Sunday 25th September at the Parliament Street Fountain, we will be sharing our wares and profiling some of the most amazing chocolate creations from our favourite chocolatiers and chocolate makers. We'll have the finest hot chocolate, a little chocolate factory for you to make your own as well as new chocolate creations and products. We do hope you'll come and find us or there will be too much chocolate to have all by ourselves.
