Cadbury World – Heritage Weekend
Cadbury World, Linden Road, Bournville, Birmingham B30 2LU
Delve into the history behind chocolate and the iconic Cadbury brand, at the Cadbury World Heritage Weekend on 9th and 10th September.
Explore the picturesque Bournville Village on our guided walks or with our fun family fact-finding trail. Visitors will uncover the story of the Cadbury brothers’ revolutionary vision to build both a new factory and community.
Back at Cadbury World, there’s even more history to discover! In the reception area, you’ll find a live human statue of John Cadbury to help bring the magic of the past to life, before seeing his first shop later in the Bull Street zone. There’s also the chance to travel back 1,000 years to the Aztec Jungle to uncover the origins of the cocoa bean and take a trip down Advertising Avenue to relive some of Cadbury’s most iconic advertising campaigns; including everyone’s favourite drumming gorilla!
For an extra dose of nostalgia, head to the popular Chocolate Making zone to watch the talented Cadbury World chocolatiers demonstrate traditional chocolate making skills, whilst enjoying a delicious pot of melted Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate with your choice of topping.
