PLEASE BE ADVISED
IT IS WITH GREAT REGREAT TO CONTESTANTS AND SUPPORTERS OF THE BIRMINGHAM CHILLI FESTIVAL HOLLY AND THE IVY & FIREFOODS HAVE TO ANNOUNCE THAT AFTER 6 SUCCESSFUL YEARS OF RUNNING THE BIRMINGHAM CHILLI FESTIVAL THE BRINDLEYPLACE MANAGEMENT TEAM HAVE DECIDED NOT TO HAVE A “CHILLI CHALLENGE” IN 2017
Lou And Pavinder Chilli King And Queen 2016
The annual Birmingham Chilli Festival (now renamed the Birmingham EXTREME Chilli Festival) by Brindleyplace will be returning to Brindleyplace on Saturday 16th September. Now in it’s 7th year it will feature a schedule of live music and street performances alongside the popular chilli-inspired food market.
Open from 11.00am – 6.00pm, the festival will feature a range of stalls offering a selection of chilli inspired food, drinks & gifts either for you to enjoy on the day or take home for your family & friends, courtesy of our market provider, Sketts.
Unfortunately it is with great regret I have to inform past contestants and supporting spectators 2016 saw the last of the popular “Birmingham Chilli Challenge” and due to circumstances beyond Holly And The Ivy & FireFoods control it has been decided by Brindleyplace NOT TO HAVE THE “CHILLI CHALLENGE” AT 2017 CHILLI FESTIVAL AT BRINDLEYPLACE.
Brindleyplace Director and Head Of Marketing Caroline Pooley says the reason for not having the “Chilli Eating Contest” at this years Chilli Festival is she feels the event needed a refresh, and a potential shift to something a little more in keeping with our tenants and workers on the estate, who pay for the services and events, many of whom are not the audience at the competition element of the Festival.
