There’s no such thing as being too old for Christmas, so gather up your nearest and dearest and head down to the Macrobertson’s Chocolate Factory in Fitzroy this November!
After the sold out success of its debut year, Sugar Republic’s Christmasland will be running from the 10th of November right up until the 23rd of December, and will feature plenty of sugary goodies to tantalise your taste buds.
Slide into a giant pool of marshmallows (dream come true), climb inside a giant present, or get a happy snap with Santa Claus! Whatever your Christmas dreams involve, they’re sure to come true here.
If the names ‘Jelly Belly’, ‘Wizz Fizz’, ‘Darrell Lea’ and ‘Skittles’ tickle your fancy, you’re in for a treat. Those are just a few of the big-name partners among many more teaming up with Sugar Republic for this year’s season. Explore the 10 sugar-licious immersive art spaces at this family friendly event, and enjoy a range of chocolate and candy samples (vegan friendly options included). If a sample size isn’t enough to satisfy your sweet tooth, why not opt for a VIP pass that includes a show bag filled with sugary goodies that’ll surely do the trick.
Sugar Republic have taken everything we love about Christmas and put it in one place; sweet treats, awkward family photos, pressies and of course, Santa! Bring along your family or a group of friends and grab a happy snap against one of the many Christmassy backdrops designed by local artists. Your Christmas cards will be the envy of everyone.
Say good-bye boring office Christmas parties and shake up your end of year celebrations with a function package, including 2-hour entry into the space, private booths, complimentary milkshakes and platters as well as entry into exclusive installations. And speaking of parties… did you forget to buy a Kris Kringle present for said office Christmas party? Don’t fret – snatch up a super last minute goodie from the gift shop while you’re there.
It will be a feast for the senses; your taste, smell, sight and sound will all be taken on an adventure, so be sure to take it all in, and simply enjoy the Christmas cheer that is sure to be all around! Tickets sold out last year, so we recommend getting in quick!
