Cadbury World unveils chocolate gingerbread house for Christmas

There’s plenty of Christmas cheer at Cadbury World this year, after the talented team of chocolatiers revealed their latest chocolatey creation – a fabulously festive gingerbread house.

Expert chocolatiers Bernie Andrews, Gail Deeley and Sian Patterson took five days to bring their design to life using recycled chocolate from the attraction’s Windsor Castle creation earlier this year. The impressive gingerbread house stands at 80cm high and weighs in at 30kg – the equivalent of 667 bars of standard Cadbury Dairy Milk.

The walls of the house have been decorated with delicate white chocolate piping and adorned with Bassetts Liquorice Allsorts and marshmallows to produce a colourful brickwork design. The windows are also hand-piped and are coated with an orange lustre to create a warm and cosy glow. The roof is tiled with white chocolate buttons and detailed with white chocolate icicles.
The design features an intricately designed balcony and front porch which are dressed with garlands and wreaths. The creation is covered with white chocolate snow and finished with a series of handmade Christmas trees, coated with a green lustre and edible glitter.
The beautiful creation will be on display in Cadbury World’s Chocolate Making zone throughout the festive season.
Elsewhere in the attraction, families can enjoy a memorable day out that’s choc-full of festive fun thanks to a deer-lightful entertainment programme and a self-guided tour of Cadbury World’s assortment of chocolatey zones.
On weekends until 23rd December, Father Christmas will take centre stage in the much-loved Santa Show and provide a gift for every little helper in attendance. Family favourite pantomime, Jack and the Cocoa Beanstalk also makes a spectacular return with seven shows per day. Cadbury World will also host additional pantomime performances from 27th – 30th December, giving visitors plenty of opportunities to join in with the chorus of boos and cheers before the year is through.
The on-site chocolatiers will also be working harder than elves in a toyshop, crafting beautiful handmade treats and gifts that are perfect to go under the tree, including everyone’s favourite handmade chocolate penguin. These will be available in The World’s Biggest Cadbury Shop, alongside other popular seasonal products.
For the perfect finish to your visit, pop into the Cadbury Café to enjoy a delicious selection of yuletide treats. For a spot of indulgence, guests can enjoy a Festive Afternoon Tea complete with a range of decadent delights and savoury favourites, topped off with a selection of teas, coffees, and of course, hot chocolate, as well as glass of festive fizz to toast the season.*
Both the pantomime and Santa Show are included in the Cadbury World admission price. For more information and to save 5% on your tickets, visit www.cadburyworld.co.uk.
*Cadbury World’s Festive Afternoon Tea is priced at £21.95 per person and available on selected dates Monday-Friday until 20th December. The Prosecco option available at a supplement of £7.99 per small bottle.

Cadbury World introduces scarily good creation

In celebration of Halloween, Cadbury World’s talented chocolatiers have unveiled their spookiest creation yet – a giant chocolate spider.

‘Arachnochoc’ took Dawn Jenks and Gail Deeley two days to create and weighs in at an impressive twelve kilograms – the equivalent of 267 bars of standard Cadbury Dairy Milk.

The eight-legged creature sits atop a chocolate rock and features incredible attention to detail. Thousands of individual hairs were carefully hand-piped all over his body and purple food colouring delicately applied to highlight the joints in his legs. His vibrant eyes have been decorated with bright green edible glitter and his fangs glint in the light thanks to a subtle silver lustre.
This latest work of art follows a host of impressive creations from the team at Cadbury World. Expert chocolatiers from the attraction recently created a miniature concert piano in celebration of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain’s performance at Symphony Hall in Birmingham and a chocolate recreation of Windsor Castle to commemorate the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
No matter the weather, there’s plenty of frightful family fun in store with themed activities and entertainment at the Bournville-based attraction’s annual Halloween Spooktacular. Until Sunday 4th November, young ghouls are encouraged to don their most fang-tastic costumes for the daily fancy dress competition where judges will be handing out delicious prizes to the scariest of visitors.
In the Cadbury World marquee, groups can enjoy live entertainment as Dermot O’Scary stars in The Scream Factor – an exciting show where Frankie Frankenstein, Witchy Woo Woo and Wolfy the Wolfman compete for a ‘Mystery Prize’. Expect a scream and sing along family show packed full of fun, frights and plenty of opportunities to get up and dance!
Cadbury World visitors can sink their teeth into the amazing world of Cadbury throughout the attraction’s chocolatey zones. The chocolatiers will be making special chocolatey treats in the popular Chocolate Making zone and visitors can experience the feeling of riding the Crunchie rollercoaster in the 4D Chocolate Adventure cinema and explore the interactive Purple Planet zone.
Throughout the attraction, beware of spooky characters in their best creepy costumes, but no need to fear – these haunting characters are entirely family-friendly.
There will be a range of spookily good treats in The World’s Biggest Cadbury Shop including exclusive handcrafted chocolate pumpkins as well as a selection of Halloween-themed cakes in the Cadbury Café.

CADBURY WORLD LAUNCHES BRAND NEW POETRY WORKSHOP AIMED AT KS2 PUPILS

In line with the current primary school English curriculum, Birmingham-based attraction, Cadbury World, has announced an all-new poetry workshop.

Titled ‘Can you create your own performance poem?’, the workshop will encourage pupils in years 5 and 6 to work in groups to create a poem about a chocolate machine.

The workshop aims to support the curriculum by developing students’ understanding and enjoyment of stories and poetry. There will also be opportunities to further children’s understanding of the different forms of poetry – specifically the importance of tone, volume and action when reading aloud. Pupils will also be given the chance to write a poem as a group and read it out loud.
To support the launch, Cadbury World will be running a school poetry competition, challenging pupils to submit a poem about a cocoa bean. The winner, which will be announced on World Book Day (Thursday 7 March 2019), will win a class trip to Cadbury World, including a talk or workshop of their choice, to be taken in May, June or September 2019.
Diane Mitchell, marketing manager at Cadbury World, said: “Our poetry workshop, held in one of our dedicated education rooms, will not only provide an opportunity to advance children’s understanding of the genre but will also help them to develop their social skills as they participate in a group learning environment.
“Cadbury World has over 27 years’ experience in hosting educational talks and workshops and we are proud to welcome over 2,000 school groups each year.”
Group visits are currently available at £9.80 per child, including the talk, for a minimum of 25 paying pupils. One free adult will also be admitted for every eight children.

Cadbury World Offers curriculum-linked geography talk for KS3 and KS4 pupils

Midlands based Cadbury World is teaching students about the importance of geography for businesses through a curriculum-based educational talk for school groups of up to 110 students.

Using Cadbury as a case study, the talk introduces students to a range of geographical topics including; globalization, location, primary, secondary and tertiary industries and sustainability.

To illustrate the workings of an international business, the task looks at Cadbury’s parent company, Mondelēz International, and its Cocoa Life initiative in partnership with cocoa farmers in Ghana for the past ten years. Pupils will learn about the company’s ‘five pillars’ and how they impact the farmers.
To reveal the importance of location for businesses, the talk uses Bournville - home of Cadbury World - as an example to show how it benefits from an ideal location in the heart of the country, with excellent transport infrastructure and access to a large potential workforce.
Pupils will also learn about the different industries Cadbury works with, including farming cocoa beans, transporting materials and manufacturing products to retail outlets that sell the final product to the consumer.
Finally, the talk highlights the sustainability goals that the company has already reached via its ‘sustainability wheel’ as well its vision for the future.
Diane Mitchell, marketing manager at Cadbury World, said: “The story of Cadbury, combined with the experience of running a modern international business provides pupils with real-life insight into the importance of geography.
“Students will be encouraged to ask and answer questions during the talk and will even have the opportunity to handle cocoa beans to help them to fully understand the origins of Cadbury chocolate.”
More educational talks are available covering topics including science, business studies, leisure and tourism and ICT. The talks are tailored to the curriculum and allow teachers to mix and match topics to cover specific areas. There’s also plenty to learn and discover through an informative self-guided tour of the attraction’s chocolatey zones.
Cadbury World has over 27 years’ experience in educational talks and welcomes over 2,000 school groups each year.
Group visits are currently available at £9.80 per child including the talk for a minimum of 25 paying pupils. One free adult will also be admitted for every eight children.
