The Rotary Club of Sherborne Castles plans to introduce a new skill into Sherborne next month, just in time for Easter: it’s all about knowing your chocolates. The CHOCOLATE TASTING evening will also give attention to the most suitable wines to pair with chocolate, promising an evening of chocoholic delight.
Book your places now – and please bring guests, discerning ones of course. The event is on Monday 25th March 2013 at The Arch in Swan Yard.
Arrival time is 7.00 pm – 7.20 pm when you will enjoy a glass of prosecco. It’s important to be in your seats by 7.20 pm for a prompt start (Latecomers not admitted until 7.30 pm)
