Swindon Festival of Literature 2010 - Peter Thornton

PETER THORNTON on a life in a family chocolate business.

Do you like good chocolate and a good story?
What has making premier brand chocolate got to do with sibling rivalry and extra-marital affairs?
Do you know where Thorntons began?
Are you interested in the pleasures and pitfalls of running a family business?
Would you like a little chocolate with your ticket?

Thorntons chocolate business has grown from a humble family corner shop in Sheffield to a multi-national company responsible for one of the most-recognised super-brands in the world.

How it reached this pinnacle of choccy success is no fairy story; more like a Shakespearean tragedy!

Family member and erstwhile company chairman Peter Thornton, author of Thorntons My Life in the Family Business, tells it all and tells it well.

Tickets - 6 (5)
