Heritage Weekend at Cadbury World in Birmingham
Discover the history behind the iconic Cadbury brand, as Heritage Weekend returns to Cadbury World from Saturday 1st July – Sunday 2nd July.
During the weekend, visitors can delve into the rich history of the Cadbury brand on Cadbury World’s guided walks (weather permitting) throughout Bournville Village.
Highlighting significant places of interest, the tour brings to life George and Richard Cadbury’s story and their revolutionary vision to build both a new factory and community.
Alternatively, for families who prefer to explore the scenic village at their own pace, there is a family-fact finding trail.
Back at Cadbury World, there’s even more history to discover through the attraction’s chocolatey zones. 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 a recreation of 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 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 toppings. With a selection of themed gifts and treats to purchase in the World’s Biggest Cadbury Shop, there’s plenty to explore on a day out at Cadbury World.
Don’t miss out on the interactive 4D Chocolate Adventure zone, where visitors can experience how it feels to dive into a pot of melted Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate, ride the Crunchie Rollercoaster and soar through the skies in a Creme Egg airship – all from the comfort of your motion seat.
Diane Mitchell, marketing manager at Cadbury World, said: “Here at Cadbury World, we are really proud of the chocolate legacy that the Cadbury brothers left behind. Heritage weekend allows visitors to step back in time, explore historical Bournville and discover where the Cadbury story began 193 years ago. It’s a fantastic day out for all the family.”
For Cadbury World visitors looking to explore more Bournville history, visitors can continue on to Selly Manor Museum, located in the Bournville Village, where they will receive 50% off admission to the museum with their Cadbury World ticket.
Heritage Weekend is just one of a number of exciting events coming up this summer at Cadbury World, including Character Weekend, the return of the Sooty Show and Summer Holiday Family Fun which takes place from 22nd July – 3rd September.
