Children can join chef Lena Ghaninejad to hear about where chocolate, Theobroma Cacao ‘The food of the Gods’ comes from, to learn about its history, including the role it played in Mayan and Aztec civilizations and its introduction to Europe as a ‘medicinal drink’, before making some truffles to take home.
New sessions start at 2pm, 3pm and 4pm. No need to book, but numbers are limited so do come early to make sure you get a place.
Free children’s activities for Easter are taking place 2-5pm, Tuesday 31 March – Thursday 2 April and Tuesday 7 – Friday 10 April. The Garden is open every day 11am – 7pm, for all to enjoy, including over the Easter weekend.
Our holiday workshops are most suitable for children aged 5 – 11, although younger children are very welcome, as long as a parent or carer works alongside them. We receive no funding for our children’s holiday activities, so please do make a donation to help cover our costs if you can.
