Online resource ties in with chocolate exhibition

Date Posted: 15/09/2014

York’s Chocolate Story’s latest exhibition, Chocolate and the People of York celebrating York’s chocolate past, present and future, opens on the 15th September.

The display tells the tale of the original chocolate-making families and those they employed, and celebrates the bright entrepreneurs who continue to keep chocolate’s heritage alive in York today.

While other northern centres made their wealth from wool, cotton and steel, York went its own sweet way and built a city from chocolate. 

After a visit to the exhibition, students can log in to the attraction’s website to find a special area dedicated to the exhibition.

In the Story Zone, children can read real stories and memories from local people who worked in the factories.
