A Celebration of Local Chocolate


We’re very excited to be taking part in a celebration of chocolate at one of our local museums over the Valentine’s weekend. The recently refurbished Bridewell Museum is the place to go to explore all things Norwich and on 13th and 14th February the museum will be celebrating the chocolate-making heritage of our ‘fine city’.

Love and Chocolate – Friday 13th February

Once again, this year the Museum of Norwich will be marking the local tradition of celebrating love on Valentines Eve with an evening devoted to the food of love – chocolate!

The museum will be open from 6pm-9pm, for visitors to explore, and find out more about how we became a nation of chocoholics and the history of chocolate making in Norwich. Find out who Jack Valentine was and how the tradition Jack leaving presents on doorsteps may have developed in Norwich and Norfolk.

If that wasn’t enough, we’ll be there giving you the chance to taste some of our delicious organic, dairy free chocolate truffles.

Adult: £6.00, conc £5.50, Museums Pass £5.00. Call 01603 629127 to book.

Chocolate City – Saturday 14th February

We will be in the museum offering visitors a true taste of heaven all wrapped up in a truffle. Find out the secrets of creating sumptuous sweet delights.

11am and 2pm – Family friendly talks on how chocolate was first introduced into the country in the 1600’s as a drink, and soon became a firm favourite as a sweet treat associated with love. (The talks are free with Museum admission.)

All visitors can enter a prize draw to win Booja Booja goodies and they can also get 10% off Booja-Booja products at Rainbow Wholefoods in Norwich (they must be in possession of an offer leaflet).
