London's best chocolate event, The Chocolate Show, is returning to Kensington Olympia this October.
Held in partnership with Chocolate Week, the show celebrates everything chocolate with a huge exhibition of stallholders, demos, workshops, tastings and a chocolate fashion show.
Top chocolatiers and chefs will be demoing at the show, including Edd Kimber and Vivek Singh in the Chocolate Theatre. There will be a tasting room, talks and pairing sessions, as well as family activities including Roald Dahl inspired children's workshops with Rococo.
Exhibitors will come from all over the world and include Paxton Chocolates, Smiths: L'Art du Chocolat and J Cocoa, plus established brands such as Divine, Lauden, Akesson’s, Duffy Sheardown, The Chocolatier, VENCHI and Leonidas.
The chocolate fashion show will have dresses — yes dresses — made from chocolate, and there will be a new competition — Chocolate Dessert of the Year, which will be judged live at the show.
The Chocolate Show takes place from 14-16 October at National Hall, Olympia. Tickets £15 on the door/£12.50 in advance for adults or £10 on the door/£8 in advance for children (from 4-12 years old). Advance tickets can be purchased from the website.
