UK’S BIGGEST CHOCOLATE CELEBRATION IS BACK
Chocolate lovers Heaven
Salon du Chocolat is proud to present a new line-up of features for the 2015 London edition of The Chocolate Show, which will take place at Olympia’s National Hall, 16-18th October. With exhibitors such as Rococo, Paul a Young, Hotel Chocolat, Divine, Marou, Willie’s Cacao and many more it’s the UK’s flagship chocolate event.
The event will be the first show to make chocolate from the bean, live. Visitors can get involved in the process and make their own bars of chocolate.
Little hands will also be getting messy– direct from the West End, the award–winning musical Charlie and The Chocolate Factory will be hosting a children’s area with workshops and events including designing your own chocolate bar. The iconic Great Glass Elevator will also be making an appearance as will Charlie & Willy Wonka who will both be performing on the gala opening evening.
Visitors will also be able to take a break from all the indulgence in the Healthy Chocolate Area exploring the latest trend for chocolate that is also good for you.
And finally, The Great British Spiced Chocolate Challenge (GBSCC) is set to truly spice up Olympia, with the final round of the challenge being judged live at the show. Over 100 professional and amateur chocolatier entrants will have each created a new spiced chocolate sensation, using spices from British artisan spice company Seasoned Pioneers. The winning product will be fast-tracked into a top London food hall in time for Christmas 2015!
The Chocolate Show is the grand finale of Chocolate Week (12-18 October). 15,000 will be flocking to West London to enjoy indulgent chocolate treats, live celebrity demonstrations, get hands-on in workshops and discover bean to bar chocolate at the UK’s largest celebration of our favourite sweet treat.
