Youth homelessness charity Roundabout is to host South Yorkshire’s first Chocolate Festival.

Taking place at Sheffield’s historic Kelham Island Museum on October 24, the festival will be the perfect event for chocolate lovers, bringing together live music, workshops and over 50 stalls featuring all things chocolate.

The organisers are inviting businesses specialising in chocolate to help bring this indulgent event to life.

“We are super excited to launch Yorkshire’s first ever chocolate festival,” said Roundabout’s Event Fundraiser, Emily Bush.

“There is going to be something for everyone, from brownies and doughnuts to hot chocolate and rum.

“You’ll find numerous treats to indulge in and other non-edible chocolate themed gifts that will save your waistline too.

“It’s very important now, though, that we reach out to those businesses that are going to make this event truly tasty.

“If you are in the business of chocolate production or anything else to do with chocolate or sweet treats, it’s time to book a space and make this an indulgent day to remember.”

Roundabout is South Yorkshire’s youth homeless charity, supporting young people aged 16 to 25 in Sheffield, Rotherham and Doncaster who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

The charity works with more than 250 young people every day, providing shelter, support and life skills to help them gain independence.
