Discover Chocolate

Discover Bristol’s past connections to the chocolate industry. Find out about its evolution in the city and unwrap the stories of those who made the confectionery in Bristol years gone by. What was it like to work in a Bristol chocolate factory and how is chocolate made?

This interactive chocolate experience is one of our tastiest school workshops yet!

Pupils will:

Discover: Chocolate School workshop at M Shed

  • handle and investigate real objects from the city’s chocolate factories and museum’s collections
  • take part in a role-play activity about life in a Bristol chocolate factory.
  • they can also use M Shed’s galleries to design their own chocolate bar in a teacher-led activity.

Suitable for: Year 3–5
Duration: 1 hour (a one hour teacher-led gallery activity is also available with the workshop)
Group size: Up to 35 pupils – you can book more than one session
