Cocoa and all things chocolate!
Join us for the next special event in our new Speaker Series, kindly hosted and supported by King Edward’s School.
We look forward to introducing you to Bill Keeling, a generous supporter of RUH fundraising and Managing Director of Prestat, one of London’s oldest chocolate shops and a favourite of Roald Dahl. Bill will share his own history of chocolate and the ethics of cocoa. There might just be some chocolate tasting too!
Find out all about the ethics of growing cocoa and the history of the Queen’s favourite chocolate brand
Join us for an insightful evening
“I had been a foreign correspondent for the Financial Times in West Africa and then Indonesia, which are big cocoa growing areas. I then went into investment banking which I didn’t enjoy, so I thought I should combine my knowledge of cocoa and business. I’m not truly a chocolatier, however, more of an entrepreneur who was lucky enough to acquire a chocolate business!”
Tickets cost £30 each, with all ticket proceeds from this event benefiting the Breast Unit at the RUH, a project which will be entirely funded by charitable support.
Parking: Guests are welcome to park in the school grounds for this event. The Wessex Building will be clearly signposted on arrival.
