Treats to take home

If you’re a keen cook, then you’ll be wowed by the goods on offer at the Benington Chilli Festival. You can expect to find over 60 stalls manned by the best chilli traders in the UK. As well as chillies themselves, you’ll be able to pick up all kinds of chilli-infused treats. Think chutneys, sauces, pickles, cheeses and even artisan chocolates laced with the hot stuff. You’ll also be able to pick up some chilli plants if you fancy growing your own.

Sample some spicy food and drink

It wouldn’t be a chilli festival if you didn’t get to sample some spicy dishes while you were there. You’ll be able to try dishes from all over the world, so the whole family will be able to find something that they’ll enjoy, Caribbean jerk chicken, Mexican tacos and Indian curries are just a few of the things on offer. Lots of drinks will be available for you to try too, from devilishly spicy cocktails to hot chocolates with a kick!

Entertainment for the whole family

The Benington Chilli Festival doesn’t disappoint when it comes to entertainment either. You can expect just as much to see and do as in previous years, and there will be activities like face-painting and sand art to keep the kids amused too. There is also going to be a chilli eating competition too, which will be lots of fun to watch. Of course, you could choose to take part in it if you’re brave enough!

Staying in the area

The surrounding areas have plenty to offer. So why not hang around and explore? There are lots of great hotels to stay at during your weekend break, but a real local favourite is West Lodge Park.
