LOMOTREAT: LC-Wide Chocolate Trail

This Easter, rediscover your youthful spirit and join us at the Monkey Shoulder Chocolate Trail…

What better way to kick start your Easter weekend than with a super indulgent chocolate trail. This is an Easter Egg hunt that tops all others!!!

The team at Monkey Shoulder have let their imaginations loose on this space with specially grown moss and grass sculptures to give the effect of the outdoors, indoors. After all, why should the kids have all the fun? If you find an Easter egg hidden amongst the foliage, you can swap it for a bespoke Monkey Shoulder whisky cocktail paired with a handmade chocolate to compliment your drink. What better way to treat yourself this Easter than creating endless panoramas of your adventure with the LC-Wide and indulging in an Adults Only Easter Treat.

Tickets are £15 and include a presentation, lend-a-camera LC-Wide, a roll of film and discounts on film processing. This tasty workshop is strictly for over 18’s only!
