Chocolate Festival First For Bury St Edmunds

Join arc shopping centre for a weekend of delicious chocolatey fun on the 8th and 9th December 2018 during their first Chocolate Festival.

A weekend packed full of delicious treats and Willy Wonka inspired characters to keep the kids (and big kids) entertained all day. 

The festival features Artisan chocolate traders, a chocolate cocktail bar, free chocolate crafts for kids, themed characters, free chocolate tastings and a giant chocolate fountain. 

It’s the perfect opportunity to stock up for Christmas, or to buy gifts for your family and friends. There will be an array of chocolate and confectionery goodness, made by the amazing artisan chocolatiers who will be trading throughout the weekend. The fun doesn’t stop there, for over 18s, there will be chocolate cocktails for sale from the naughty chocolate bar, so don't forget your ID!  Perfect for drinking in the cozy chill out zone at the event! 

The event is taking place in Charter Square  9am - 5pm on Saturday 8th December and 10am - 5pm on Sunday 9th December.

arc Centre Manager, Colin Roberts, said “We are excited to host a Chocolate Festival, it is a great opportunity to come and relax with friends for a few cocktails or to bring along your little ones for the free chocolate crafts.  Not forgetting the opportunity to buy Christmas gifts for friends and family and enjoy our chocolate fountain. We love being able to spread the Christmas cheer with our fantastic free events.”
