Hotel Chocolat in Leeds is extending its Children’s Workshops this summer, building on the success of the popular weekend event.
The workshops will run every Wednesday at 10am throughout the summer holidays, with no pre-booking necessary.
The event includes a free child’s drink – either a hot chocolate or a chocolate shake – and begins with chocolate training where children can learn how chocolate is made, followed by a tasting.
The School Of Chocolate venue was inspired by the cocoa plantation the brand runs in St Lucia, and it also hosts adult events every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, including the ‘Bean to Bar’ workshop and the ‘Chocolate Tasting Adventure’.
Samuel Long, General Manager at Hotel Chocolat, Leeds, said: “As we are the School of Chocolate, it seemed only natural for us to get involved with our very own Summer Holiday event.
“Rather than having a traditional summer break, we’ve decided to open our school more over the summer because we know everyone wants to come and learn about chocolate whilst trying some of their favourites.”
Amy Horwood, Event Manager at Hotel Chocolat, Leeds, said: “We wanted to extend our events to allow parents to come and do something different with their children, whilst also enjoying some sit down time with a coffee or hot chocolate.
“It’s a great excuse to spend time with your friends and their children too. Parents can watch their kids create their own chocolate masterpieces while our hosts lead the workshop, allowing the parents time to enjoy their own drinks and have a catch up with friends.”
To take part, visit the venue at Trinity Leeds on Albion Street, where you will be shown to the dedicated events space upstairs which has been decorated in a summer fete theme.
