About

Taking over the Sansovino Hall, in Bristol’s new Harbour Hotel on the 15th and 16th April, Taste Chocolate is a two day family friendly event, featuring over 30 exhibitors, chocolate demonstrations, a Prosecco bar, a history of chocolate exhibition and new for this year, a chocolate multi-sensory experience, inviting you to experience chocolate like never before.

Origin: The multisensory chocolate experience has been created by Bristol based storytellers and gastronomy experimenters, Understory. Part theatre, part chocolate tasting and psychology, the multisensory experience uses art, tarot, mindfulness and music to enhance the way audience members eat chocolate and will take place in the underground vaults of the Bristol Harbour Hotel’s new spa.

Another new edition in celebration of the festival is our Rum and Chocolate tasting evening at Amoeba on Wednesday 12 April. For further details, please see here.

Visitors to the festival will be able to indulge in amazing hand-made chocolates from artisan producers; learn about chocolate skills from local chefs and chocolatiers in the Chocolate Theatre; discover Bristol’s rich chocolate history with the History of Chocolate Exhibition; and treat themselves to a glass of bubbly at the Taste Chocolate Prosecco Bar.

As well as the best local chocolatiers, there will be artisan food and drink producers selling indulgent pastries, locally made gin and liqueurs, fudge, chai, churros, crepes, chocolate desserts and cakes, sugar free, vegan and dairy free chocolate; and of course, lots of chocolate Easter eggs and other Easter related goodies.

Plus we’ll have family activities including the Taste Chocolate Easter Treasure Hunt sponsored by Divine Chocolate. For more information, please see here.
