About the Event
Join us for an evening of chocolate, where you'll make your own chocolate from fairly traded ingredients and learn about Fair Trade and the Fair Trade Towns Movement and how Bruce, your host, brought Garstang to become the world's very first Fair Trade Town which led on to become a global movement.
Bruce will take you through the entire bean to bar process, all the way from the farmers in New Koforidua in Ghana who grow the cocoa beans which you'll be using to produce your own chocolate bar right through to us, the consumer.
You will not only discover how chocolate is made from scratch but you’ll also learn about its origins, history and the very real impact Fair Trade has on the cocoa growing communities.
You won't look at or taste chocolate the same way again.
- All the ingredients and equipment needed to produce your own chocolate
- Hot drinks throughout the evening.
