Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to book my tickets in advance?
If you are planning to attend Eastnor ChilliFest we strongly recommend you book your tickets in advance. To avoid overcrowding there is a limit on the number of tickets available so we can’t guarantee any will still be available on the day. Tickets have sold out in advance for the previous 2 years.

Will there be any tickets available on the day?
If all of our tickets sell out online before the event there won’t be any tickets available to buy on the day. If they don’t sell out online beforehand, the remainder of tickets will be available on the gate. 

How will we know if there are tickets available on the day?
Online ticket sales will stop at 10am each day (or before if all tickets are sold). A message will be displayed on this page at 10am each morning advising whether any tickets are available to buy on the gate. Once we have reached our ticket capacity, we will update our website and place signs on the road advising the event is full and any cars who don’t have pre-purchased tickets will then be turned away.

I have a Privilege Card, do I need to buy tickets?
If you have a valid Privilege Card you do not need to purchase tickets, or let us know you are coming. Please just arrive as normal and show your card to the ticket staff.

Am I allowed in with a Complimentary ticket?
Complimentary tickets are unfortunately not valid for Eastnor ChilliFest

Can I bring my dog?
Dogs are welcome, as always, but please bear in mind the event will be busy and there will be lots of spicy food around!

Will there be vegetarian/vegan food available?
There will be plenty of vegetarian food available from the food stalls and several stalls will be offering vegan menus too.

Can I exchange my ticket for a different day?
Unfortunately, any pre-purchased tickets are non-refundable and non-exchangeable.

Is camping available?

Can I pay by debit or credit card at ChilliFest?
You may pay for your ticket with debit or credit card and some stalls will take card payments but most will take cash only. Please bring cash with you as there are no cash points in the near vicinity.

Do I need to print out my e-ticket?
No, you will be able to show your e-ticket on a mobile or tablet device, as long as the bar code is visible.
