Vangarde 5th Birthday Celebration

About

Vangarde Shopping Park in York is celebrating its fifth anniversary with special family-friendly events over Easter weekend - including a four-foot tall chocolate sculpture.

TV chocolatier Ashley McCarthy will unveil the edible creation on Thursday 18 April in the entrance of John Lewis at Vangarde. It will be in place for public viewing before being donated to and auctioned off by York Against Cancer on Easter Monday.

Local chef and chocolatier Ashley McCarthy features on Channel 4's new series 'Extreme Chocolate Makers' which is set to air on Easter Sunday. Ashley will be doing chocolate demonstrations upstairs in John Lewis on Saturday 20th.

On the Saturday, there will be a children's craft area run by the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust in Next along with face painting and balloon making.
