The Chappel Chocolate House runs parties for all age groups at our venue at Poplar Nurseries, opening 1st March 2018, and also ‘at home’ parties within Essex and Suffolk, including Romford, Brentwood, Ipswich, Colchester, Witham, Halstead, Braintree, Sudbury, Bury St Edmunds, Stowmarket, Southend, Rayleigh, Leigh-on-Sea, Hadleigh, Lavenham to name but a few. Our workshops have been designed to suit all age groups but if you don’t see what you are looking for, they can be tailored to suit your needs.

At one of our parties you will learn about chocolate, where it comes from and learn a range of techniques to make them, making your own chocolate to take home. The activities will depend on the age and skills level of the group. All you have to do is invite your guests and set the date. Come and visit us at Poplar Nurseries. We are situated behind in the car park of the garden centre.

If you choose to have your party at home, all that’s needed is access to a power socket, fridge/freezer and a table large enough for your guests to stand/sit around – preferably solid floor. The number of guests is limited to the size of your kitchen/dining room table! The maximum number of people depends on the size of your kitchen / dining room table/venue! The bonus is that The Chappel Chocolate House will take home all the mess!

At the time of booking you will also be able to order a gift and have the option of buying a Chocolate House Party apron or Chappel Chocolate House delicious chocolates.
