ChocFest is an exciting community minifestival, led by Birmingham-based theatre company The Bone Ensemble and features new music and performances to get people talking, thinking – and yes, eating! – all things chocolate.

Reigniting and celebrating Bournville’s historic connection with Ghana – the Commonwealth country where cocoa originates – ChocFest will tell the stories of working people across the continents who all have had a hand in the journey from cocoa pod to Dairy Milk.

ChocFest will be created with performers and musicians from the UK and Ghana, communities and organisations in Bournville and Stirchley, cocoa-growing communities in Ghana, experts in African History and Responsible Business, and Birmingham production company, OPUS, who have teamed up to realise the project.
