Now in it’s 5th year, the Chilli Festival at Eastnor Castle is back on Sunday 6th May and Bank Holiday Monday 7th May.  This year, there will be over 50 stalls and entertainment, showcasing all things HOT!
The castle courtyard will be transformed into a Chilli Market and visitors will be able to try and buy delicious products such as chocolate, bread, cake, vodka, cocktails and chutney as well as grow-your-own chilli plants.  There will also be a number of specialist hot food suppliers selling authentic Asian curries and other spicy foods.
There is a huge amount going on over the weekend with something for all chilli fans.  Back by popular demand is the Clifton Chilli Club with their chilli shenanigans which includes our legendary chilli eating competition.  Join local chefs Felice Tocchini, Rayeesa, Tom Court, Rob Swift and vegetarian specialist Lizzy in the cookery demonstrations marquee and children can join in Easy Peasy cookery school.
