Regretfully the Cheese & Chilli Festival was cancelled for 2020 due to government restrictions on COVID-19.

However, plans are now in place for 2021 to be better than ever!

Save the date – 7 & 8 August 2021!


The Cheese & Chilli Festival offers a fantastic family-friendly, fun-filled event.

Spicing things up, the event will see a whole host of tasty treats, amazing entertainment and food competitions for those that can handle the heat. What’s more the festival will be supporting worthwhile charities.

Event specific entertainments include:

The Cheese Festival – try and buy from an incredible range of local and regional products

Chilli Eating Competition that isn’t for the faint hearted and is set to deliver some hilarious entertainment

Man V Food Challenge offers another contest for foodies to enter or observe

Chilli Sauce Competition – there will be entries for mild, medium and hot sauces with festival go-ers invited to play judge

The Beer Festival from Downton Brewery is the perfect place to indulge, with an excellent array of real ales along with wines, spirits and lagers too. The festival will also feature a fantastic inflatable pub not to mention Worley’s cider bar.

Live music from local bands in the dedicated stage area.

Cooking demonstrations welcoming Chilli Olly and special guests for the occasion.

The Cheese & Chilli Festival has something for the whole family. Highlights include crazy golf, human-sized table football, children’s rides, face painting, magic shows, balloon modelling, and even a garden games zone.
