Happy Easter to all our readers! In the spirit of Easter, and yummy chocolate Easter eggs in particular, Shapa Begum reviews The Chocolate Festival – A chocoholics dream…
While visiting the South Bank Centre last week I was amazed to see the Chocolate Festival taking place by the Royal Festival Hall. I am a dedicated chocolate lover so I had to see what the Chocolate Festival was about!
The Chocolate Festival has been run a number of times in London, and it continues going strong, with numerous chocolate makers such as Damian Allsop, Rococo and Hotel Chocolat all selling, fine truffles, chocolate bars, bonbons, chocolate cakes, pancakes, ice cream, milkshakes and more all in one place.
The festival had a definite Easter theme, so it was also a delight to see many Easter eggs on offer, especially with Easter being around the corner. In fact the chocolate festival was the perfect place to stock up on all Easter essentials, I myself bought a few chocolate lollies and Easter eggs – as well as a chocolate festival tote bag.
The Chocolate Festival is definitely about passion, quality and all things chocolate! Being set outdoors by the South Bank was the perfect location for everyone to enjoy. Although the chocolate festival has come to an end for the Easter period, it will take place again during Xmas – which I hope to attend for sure!
