Event description

Description

Britain is in the midst of a chocolate revolution!

Across the UK, dedicated chocolate makers are setting up micro-operations in spare bedrooms, bakeries and even sheds with the goal of creating great quality, small-batch chocolate. Controlling every step of the production from bean to bar allows the makers to establish their own unique brands: from direct, ethical trade with farmers to unroasted, vegan or low-GI bars.

For one week only, the Bean to Bar Britain pop-up shop is bringing together one of the single largest collections of British chocolate makers and showcasing their produce in London as part of Chocolate Week.

"There is nothing better than a friend, unless it is a friend with chocolate." ~ Charles Dickens

Join us for a celebration of all things Dickens and chocolate at the final event of our pop-up shop. Famously a key location in Dickens' Little Dorrit, our space on Marshalsea Road seemed like the perfect place to host a candle lit evening of traditional Victorian cocktails and London bean to bar makers.

Come and enjoy a hearty swig of Scrooge's Smoking Bishop or warm yourself with a mug of Micawber's Punch (so strong we have to set it on fire!) Featuring bars by Land, Beau Cacao, Tadzio, Damson and Lucocoa, the evening is chance to toast London's famous literary history and learn about it's emerging craft chocolate artisans.
