ChocFest is one of the UK’s largest chocolate festivals and it is once again being staged at The Stockyard on the town’s livestock market site.

It runs from 10am to 4pm on both Saturday and Sunday.

Some of the nation’s finest chocolatiers have signed up to the festival and they will be complimented by stands selling chocolate cakes, brownies, liqueurs, marshmallows, biscuits, macarons, donuts, crepes, ice cream, puddings and hot chocolate.

There will also be other stands with seasonal food and drink.

Visitors can enjoy talks and live demonstrations in the Chocolate Theatre with tastings being held in the Tasting Room.

An award-winning gospel choir and others will provide entertainment with a variety of street food for those who get hungry during the event.

Organiser, Matthew O’Callaghan said: “This should be a great day out for anyone that loves chocolate.

"We’ve added more chocolatiers and a good few other stands to provide visitors with a great day out in a rural market town.

"It’s all undercover and if it gets cold then there’s hot chocolate and lashings of mulled cider and wine.”

Tickets cost £5 on the gate and accompanied under 16s get in free.
