Sunday Afternoon Chocolatada
As of 18th March 2020, our Chocolate Making Workshops and Scheduled Tours are postponed whilst the country deals with these extensive challenges. We look forward to you joining us once more and in the meantime, we invite you to make reservations for our forthcoming masterclasses. We will contact you at least one week prior to the workshop you have reserved to notify you if we are able to recommence our scheduled program.
We thank you for your continued support and understanding and look forward to welcoming you to our Chocolate Manufactory again soon. Keep a look out for our chocolate making kits and online tutorials that we hope to launch shortly.
There is no fee attached to making a workshop reservation, payments will be taken either one week prior to the event or on the day of the event.
The Chocolatada dates back far before Tea parties, they were the original, highly fashionable chocolate party, where guests would meet, be extremely sociable and consume chocolate - essentially one very big chocolate party - sounds fabulous! What's not to love?
Join us at our Afternoon Chocolatada every Sunday where you will enjoy a combination of our Cocoa specialities all made with chocolate while we share with you the journey of our cocoa and how we work with it to create our chocolate, our recipes and our dishes.
Our Afternoon Chocolatada takes place at our Chocolate Manufactory - York Cocoa Works on Castlegate, you and your guests will join us in our Cocoa Academy to learn from our chocolate makers who will share their creations with you. We welcome parties and groups to join us on the day to share in our menu of chocolate delicacies and treats.
Reservations for Afternoon Chocolatada in our Cocoa Academy can be made for groups of up to 12 people in size using the ticket purchasing application. You will have the opportunity to reserve your chosen table upon booking. If you are unable to find the availability for your group or you have a larger party size please do contact our team on
Special Dietary Requirements:
Please note our Chocolatada menu changes with the seasons and specialities, in order to ensure we can cater for the requirements of all of our guests we do ask that you inform us of any special dietary needs amongst your group at least 48 hours prior to your booking. Please feel free to ask any of your guests to contact us should they wish to discus their needs with our chefs directly -
The Extra Special Touches:
Want to make the occasion that little bit more special? We can create a special chocolate goody bag for you and your guests to take home, join us for a chocolate tour before or following or craft your own chocolate bar to take home and share (well maybe). We are happy to incorporate those little special treats to ensure you can craft your own Chocolatada to your own liking.
