Eastnor Castle Chilli Festival is back…. Bigger, Better & Hotter!

25 April 2014

Now in its 3rd year, the Chilli Festival at Eastnor Castle, is back on Sunday 4th and Bank Holiday Monday 5th 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.

David Littlewood, General Manager at Eastnor Castle said "We are really thrilled with the success of our Chilli Festival and it has gained a huge following.  The Clifton Chilli Club are back by popular demand this year, hosting the Chilli eating competition for anyone brave enough to join in.

Our Head Groundsman, Nick Robinson (pictured) who grows his own chillies, will be taking part in the competition to see if he can better his 3rd place last year".

In our cookery theatre, Thai chef Suree Coates, from Shropshire who is chef of the year semi-finalist and has her own restaurant 'The King and Thai' will be demonstrating her authentic cookery skills;  Marina Ibrahim will be showing visitors how to make delicious Egyptian mezze and Italian chef Felice Tocchini.  Younger visitors will be well catered for with the Easy Peasy Children's Cookery Theatre.


To create a real carnival atmosphere, there will be live musical entertainment from local Mexican band - Los Squideros from Hereford, joining them will be One Island Steel Band to entertain the crowds.
