Magna to host all things chocolate

BROWNIES, doughnuts, cookies, muffins, cupcakes — Magna Science Adventure Centre will be full of sweet treats when it hosts the forthcoming Yorkshire Chocolate Festival.

The event, in aid of South Yorkshire youth homelessness charity Roundabout, will bring together live music, workshops and more than 70 stalls featuring some of the county’s best bakers, crafters, chocolatiers and makers.

Last year creators from across the north took part in the first Yorkshire Chocolate Festival at Sheffield’s Kelham Island, with a sell-out crowd raising £15,000 for Roundabout, which supports young people aged 16 to 25 in South Yorkshire who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

Now organisers have confirmed the festival will be back on Saturday, October 15, but due to popular demand, they have moved the expanded event to Magna at Templeborough.

Roundabout event organiser Emily Bush said: “We were delighted with the way the first Yorkshire Chocolate Festival went and are really excited to be able to say that our 2022 event will be so big that we simply had to find a larger space to accommodate everything we have planned.

“We are again hosting a great variety of stalls that are all somehow linked to chocolate or sweet treats.

“From brownies and doughnuts to hot chocolate mugs and wax melts, there will be something for everyone!”
