Chilli Fiesta

Join the party at the UK's biggest chilli festival on 10th -12th August 2018

This event has grown year on year to become one of the UK's biggest chilli festivals. This is a fabulous event to attend if you find yourself in the local area during August but be warned as it sells out fast!

You'll find yourself dancing to live Latin music, watching cookery and gardening demonstrations as well as tasting delicious chilli foods; sampling as many chillies from around the world as you can handle. Make the most of the family-friendly festival atmosphere with the added choice to camp onsite with great facilities.
