I know its early but I just wanted to get the dates out to you all for this years Upton Cheyney Chilli Festival.
Last years was a massive success with 3000+ people visiting us over the course of the day and night. We had a fantastic time and based on the success, we have decided to expand the festival to two days with an opening night.
On this basis the opening night will be Friday 7th September. This will be tickets only, and will be more of a music and drinking affair than it is chilli related. We have camping on the farm this year however so we would love for as many people to arrive on the Friday as possible and make a whole weekend of it!
The real chilli festival will start on the Saturday at midday and will go on until about 8pm, with the last couple of hours being filled with live music. There will be an entrance fee on both the Saturday and Sunday although it is unlikely to exceed Â£3.
The Sunday will once again start at midday and finish at 5pm. There will be a chilli eating competition on both days, and we also hope to put on a non-chilli related show.
There will be loads of entertainment for adults and children alike, along with chilli talks, tastings and demonstrations. There is of course a bar and food, with the camping making it a little like a mini Glastonbury but with chillies as opposed to the drugs!
Please do put the date in your diaries and as always we look forward to welcoming a good number of the Chillies Galore members to Manor Farm, Upton Cheyney.
