Booths to host Easter Chocolate Festival celebrating artisan producers and Easter selection


Northern fine food retailer Booths will host a decadent Easter Chocolate Festival on the 18 and 19 of March to celebrate the artisan producers with which it collaborates and Booths’ indulgent selection of Easter treats.

Taking place across three stores, the Chocolate Festival will welcome Booths customers to indulge and discover, with chocolate samples, wine, beer and chocolate matching, creative chocolate slab making demonstrations, as well as a free prize draw.

Artisan chocolatiers Davenports will be sampling their exquisite new range of Booths Easter Eggs which they hand make for the retailer, with enticing egg flavours like Dark Chocolate, Lime and Sea salt, Milk Chocolate and Honeycomb and White Chocolate and Raspberry Fizz. For chocolate connoisseurs with adventurous tastes, Willie’s Cacao and The Grown Up Chocolate Company will be seducing customers with a cornucopia of ‘only for adults’ flavours.

For the kids, Booths chocolate bunny lollies made by Yorkshire chocolatiers Choc Affair, and the chance to learn how to make colourful chocolate slabs as the perfect Easter gift at a free demonstration.

Family bakers Bells of Lazonby will be introducing chocoholics to Booths’ extravagant chocolate themed Hot Cross Buns including Chocolate and Ginger and White Chocolate and Raspberry flavours, and Lathams of Broughton will be offering samples of their devilishly delicious salted chocolate fudge cake and other baked treats.

Booths’ licensed specialists will teach customers how to match their chocolate with the perfect tipple, and local breweries Northern Monk and Saltaire Brewery will be sampling their rich chocolate porters and ales.

Head of Booths brand, Abby Talbot said “We can’t wait to hold an unashamedly ‘chocolate-centric’ event for connoisseurs and the chocolate curious. We have been working in collaboration with some brilliant local producers to create our Easter range and it’s going to be an irresistible chance to discover everything we’ve been developing.”

The Chocolate Festival will visit Garstang (11AM-1 PM) and Lytham (3PM-5PM) on 18 March 18 and Hale Barns (11AM-3PM) on 19 March.

The event is open to all and entry is free.
