Our amazing children’s workshops last for around 1.5 hours, and are hosted at our shop in Hastings. We typically cover

  • A tasting session
  • Making a chocolate balloon bowl
  • Making a chocolate bar
  • Making and decorating chocolate lollipops

The content of our children’s workshops may vary seasonally, for example at Easter we will include egg related fun!

We can accommodate up to 6 children in each workshop. We ask for a spectating adult to stick around.

These experiences are suitable for children of any age, as long as they are tall enough to work at a standard kitchen worktop.

Our workshops are ideal holiday fun, whether you live locally in Hastings, St Leonards, Bexhill or other local towns, or whether you are holidaying in the area.

Workshops are £25 per child.

Private Parties

We can also host private children’s parties, which  can be held at our shop in Hastings or at another location of your choice. We typically travel to locations in Hastings, St Leonards, Bexhill, Battle, Rye or nearby villages, or as far as Tunbridge Wells. However we may be able to travel further afield in East Sussex, Brighton or Kent by arrangement.

We can carry out the same activities as in our public workshops, or tailor them to your requirements. For example we can run classes or courses covering more educational material such as talking about the steps in chocolate production, the history of chocolate, or demonstrating how to temper chocolate. These can be adapted to suit children in Key Stage 1, 2 or 3 (KS1, KS2, KS3).

We are experienced with birthday parties, events for school holiday and summer camps, and workshops for English Language Students. We are also experienced with carrying our workshops for children with special educational needs.

We can accommodate a maximum of 8 children at our site, but groups of up to 6 work best.
