The Chocolate Factory, Derby


What is it all about?


A celebration, a series of events, a metaphor, a sensory experience! The Sweet Like Cocoa Festival uses chocolate as metaphor for the journey of African-Caribbean communities whilst weaving a journey through the history of this modern day pleasure.
