Blenheim Palace has joined forces with Hotel Chocolat to offer younger visitors the chance to create their very own tasty treats over the Easter weekend (April 15th-18th).
The luxury chocolatiers will be putting on fun and interactive Chocolate Workshops (April 12th– 18th), giving children the chance to learn the fascinating history of cocoa beans, while experimenting in the decoration of personalised chocolate slabs.
Taking place within the Palace’s Walled Gardens, the hour-long workshops cost £15 per child and include a drink as well as their individual chocolate creations. Adults are warned it may get a little messy (advance booking recommended as spaces are limited).
Hotel Chocolat’s ChocMobile will also be at the Oxfordshire UNESCO World Heritage Site throughout the Easter holidays delivering a range of delicious chocolate treats, ice cream and drinks.
Alongside the workshops youngsters can meet the Easter Bunny, enjoy fairground rides, watch puppet shows and learn magical circus tricks in the Big Top.
Conk the Clown will also be on parade greeting children over the weekend with Punch and Judy shows, mini golf, trampolining and bubble blowing performances also adding to the fun.
No Easter would be complete without a traditional egg hunt (April 15th – 18th) and parents and children alike will have the opportunity to search the Palace’s Formal Gardens for giant wicker eggs to win chocolate treats.
The four-day entertainment is included as part of Palace, Park and Gardens ticket or to those with an annual pass.
Not only an iconic part of history, Blenheim Palace hosts an ever-changing calendar of events, themed tours and exhibitions. www.blenheimpalace.com
