London’s Chilli Festival Is Back For Its Fourth Year

On Sunday 25 September The Festival of Heat will return to Shoreditch for the fourth consecutive year.

The aim of the festival is to celebrate everything that is great about the burn, which means a line up of workshops, tastings, shopping and entertainment.

Yep, that's a chilli.

A wide selection of chilli producers will be at the festival, sharing their expertise at workshops like ‘How to Grow the Perfect Chilli’ and ‘Cooking with Chilli to Achieve the Perfect Heat.’

Cocktails with kick.

There will be an outdoor market full of chilli products, an al fresco picnic area and entertainment from local bands playing folk and country music.

Get your fix of spicy food at the festival.

Street food stalls will include the likes of White Men Can’t Jerk, famous in London for their spicy jerk chicken, and there will be plenty of chilli infused drinks. Basically, everything is going to have chilli in it.

White Men Can't Jerk. Or can they?

The festival of chilli is on 25 September at the Red Market, 288 Old Street, EC1V 9LA. Reserve your early bird ticket for £10, or pay the door price of £15.
