A Birmingham museum founded by chocolate-maker George Cadbury is inviting visitors to gobble up tickets to a very tasty event this June.

Selly Manor Museum and the Busy Parents Network will team up to transform the museum into a ‘House of Chocolate’ on Saturday 16th June for one day only.

Visitors will be able to discover a chocolate box of delights, from storytelling and performances to art, demonstrations and trails – all with a confectionery-theme.

There will be performances from the author and illustrator of new children’s book ‘A Chocolate Factory Ghost’ by David O’Connell and Claire Powell, published by Bloomsbury.

Birmingham’s very own poet Matt Windle will be creating chocolate-inspired poetry and there will be storytelling of book ‘Two Brothers and a Chocolate Factory’.

The talented Cadbury World team will be making visitors’ mouths water with chocolate-making demonstrations and there will be a mystery trail around the museum.

Daniel Callicott, Manager of Selly Manor Museum in Bournville, said: “We are so excited to put on this event which for anyone who loves chocolate is a must. As well as performances and demonstrations, we will be creating a chocolate factory collage and getting messy with chocolate-inspired crafts.

“There will also be chocolate stalls, cakes and refreshments throughout the day.”

The event will take place over two time slots – 10am–1pm or 1.30pm–4.30pm and tickets are available to book online via the museum’s website sellymanormuseum.org.uk

Selly Manor Museum is one of Birmingham’s most historic visitor attractions and welcomes thousands of people, including school children, every year.

Made up of two distinct buildings, it brings Tudor history to life with interactive exhibits, tours, talks and special events.

The museum, managed by Bournville Village Trust, was opened by George Cadbury in 1916 after he rescued it from destruction and much of its beautiful collection was donated by the chocolate-maker’s son Laurence.
