Hans Sloane Chocolate & Fine Food Festival
Hans Sloane Chocolate & Fine Food Festival Returns
Thousands of chocolate lovers and foodies from across the island of Ireland and beyond are expected to descend again this year on the picturesque village of Killyleagh in County Down to celebrate the 2018 Finnebrogue Artisan Hans Sloane Chocolate & Fine Food Festival, 14th – 16th September.
The festival will kick off on Friday 14th September with the Chocolate Ball which will take place in the exquisite grounds of Killyleagh Castle, one of Ireland’s longest-inhabited castles. Guests can expect a mouth-watering chocolate inspired menu prepared and designed by Chef Simon Dougan of Yellow Door and world-class entertainment following dinner, allowing guests to dance the night away in a stunning marquee against the backdrop of Killyleagh Castle.
The Festival will continue on Saturday 15th & Sunday 16th September, where guests will be spoiled for choice with two days of family fun with activities and entertainment for all ages and a vast range of chocolatiers’ displays, market stalls and tasting and purchasing options for a memorable weekend of fun.
We’re absolutely delighted that this year’s festival will once again support Cancer Fund for Children. In previous years, an outstanding £61,000 has been raised to support local families affected by cancer.
Highlighting the long-standing partnership, Gillian Creevy, Cancer Fund for Children Chief Executive sai:
“We’re delighted to continue our partnership with the Hans Sloane Chocolate & Fine Food Festival and event sponsor Finnebrogue. At Cancer Fund for Children we nurture, connect and empower children and families whose lives have been impacted by cancer so they feel strengthened and equipped to deal with whatever the future may hold. The young people and families we support are at the heart of everything we do. We are thrilled to be involved in such a positive family-friendly event again in 2018.”
