This is a call-out to the capital's chocoholics! A new Chocolate Festival is being held at the Southbank Centre next weekend. It's free, and you're all invited!

Don't wait til Easter to gorge on dangerous amounts of the deathly nice brown stuff. Pop down to the Southbank on Friday 3 to Sunday 5 April, and you'll find dozens of stalls dedicated to everyone's favourite food.

Taste Chocolate! How about Paul Wayne Gregory's award-winning coconut and passion fruit bonbons? Or a little something sweet from Britain's Best Chocolatier (third year running), William Curley? Or a chocolate-infused savory treat from Santa Fe Mexican food

Drink Chocolate! Slurp down some delicious drinking chocolate from Choc Star and Ooh La La

Make Chocolate! Take part in a workshop making chocolate truffles from raw cocoa

Study Chocolate! Let Healthy Chocolate UK teach you all about the health benefits of chocolate

Mess With Chocolate! Artistry in Cocoa will be showing you how to include chocolate in savoury dishes... (Really? Seems like a waste to us...)

Plus, there'll be books about chocolate and book signings too. We're not sure if they're going to be signing the books in chocolate. But we think you've got the idea by now.

See you there - we'll be the ones with the embarrassing "are you saving that for later?" stains around our mouths...

The Chocolate Festival, 3rd to 5th April, 11am to 8pm (6pm on Sunday) at Southbank Centre Square. Yum.
