Wed, 25/01/2017 - 12:00pm
Aunt Sandra's, Belfast

We're doing a very hands on chocolate workshop with lots of lovely treats to take away with us. For those of you with daily intolerances, they've asked you to bring along some dairy free chocolate and you will be able to participate in everything the rest of us are doing. There will be a quiz, a trip into the chocolate factory and lots of opportunity to chat to our host - Mr Willy Wonka! The whole workshop will take about an hour and a half. 

Adults do not pay to accompany children and under twos are very welcome to come along and dabble in the chocolate too. 

Booking is essential, we can put you in touch with the organisers. The trip is to tie in with reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
