You've missed this event

Normally a bath is a relaxing, calm experience; time for you to lay back and chill out. Well this August, the University of Bath are getting ready to give you the opposite experience, as you CHILLI out at the Bath Chilli Festival.

Held at the University campus, this festival will bring together chill retailers, chilli experts, hardcore chilli enthusiasts, and naïve chilli newcomers to spice up the summer for everyone involved.

You’ll be able to buy a host of chilli products from the South West and beyond, learn about chilli-growing culture and science in fascinating educational talks, listen to chilled out acoustic music sets (or should that be CHILLIED out?), set your kids free for a range of children’s activities, or if you’re feeling brave enough, take part in the big chilli eating competition. Not for the faint of heart, this competition will test your mettle, and only the most thick-skinned of contestants will be crowned the winner.

Celebrating all things hot, spicy, and of course tasty, Bath Chilli Festival is one to watch for danger-loving foodies across the country.
