The City of York, a destination rich in chocolate heritage, will be transformed into a chocolate lover’s paradise from the 27th to the 31st of March. The highly anticipated Chocolate Festival promises a five-day celebration, inviting attendees to immerse themselves in a variety of delectable activities, with many being complimentary.

There will be the unveiling of a new LNER commissioned chocolate sculpture from Ashley McCarthy so it's First Stop York for chocolate.

Festival Director Michael Hjort said:
"We are really glad to be back in Parliament Street in the heart of York. There's something for everyone of all ages and at the Festival."

Free entry to the festival area and market with some ticketed events.
