Seventy percent has a whole week of stuff going on in the days and evenings for Chocolate Week, and it would really be great to see some of you forum regulars during the week.

I know it might not be so easy for some of you to get to London, but if there is enough interest it would be great to have a face to face meet and share our chocolate passion in person.

Post your ideas and thoughts here, if we can get enough people interested we can try and lay on a special event or tasting.

cheers,

Martin

That would be nice Martin. I'm planning a visit to London during Chocolate Week. We have our annual chocolate event in Stockholm the weekend 9-10 October. I'm planning to leave London early Saturday morning.

Good! Any more takers? I know we are all flung around the world, but if we can get 4 or 5 of us in the same place at the same time, maybe we can start a tradition!

Count me in! I'm not far from London, so no excuse for non-attendance.

I'm thinking of a social event, without charges or anything. Just a chance to put faces to names and build our community. Probably an afternoon in the public space at Hampstead Theatre in Swiss Cottage, London - our venue for the week.

I'll try and get some samples from chocolate companies arranged, and anything else interesting I can think of. Open to suggestions on this one - let's just make sure there is chocolate!

I really want to come over for some days. Do you have a special day in mind for the social event?

We're just finalising our itinerary for the week, so if you can all tell me what would be the best day now, that would really help! Thursday evening is out, and Tuesday and Friday I have tastings at 6.30pm. Weds and Sat afternoons are taken already. We intend to have free events each afternoon, but these are not yet fixed, so it would be good to know now.

We could do something in an afternoon, or early evening. I see it as a social, rather than an official Seventypercent event, so we can be democratic about it – as long as I can be there!

As much as I love it, spending several hundre € on flying five hours to talk choclate will be a bit too extravagant for me.[:(]

You want 100%. You want sugar free. you want real vanilla. You want no malitol and stuff like that.

You want me to bring ten different 70% plus choc bars to Swiss (not appropriate name) Cottage?

Just say.

How about the afternoon of Friday 8 October, where you can also watch me make this Aztec Froth drink I made up? This will free and open to all at Hampstead Theatre, Eton Avenue, Swiss Cottage, London. Be great to see as many of you as possible.

We'll also be offering discounts to forum members for our paid events, including our Gala night on Thursday 7 October. Details of this offer soon.

I wish I could make it too, but there's this little thing called the Atlantic Ocean. Have fun, and eat a couple bars on my behalf.
