The Cheese and Chilli Festival is the only show in the UK which celebrates both cheese and chilli within a festival setting.

The event is a family show offering something for everyone.  Between 70 and 100 traders selling cheese and chilli-associated products as well as craft and retail stands.

Entertainments include pig racing, falconry displays, Punch & Judy, magic shows, free garden games, children fun rides and inflatables, live music, cooking demonstrations/talks, a chilli eating competition, a chilli sauce competition and the Man v Food Challenge.

There is plenty to eat and drink with authentic food stalls and dedicated bars available.

This year, we have moved the event to the Garrison Ground which is easily accessible via Bar End Road and is opposite St Catherine’s Park and Ride facility which has plenty of parking spaces.

We hope you can make it!
