The Eastnor ChilliFest is heating up Eastnor Castle this May bank holiday weekend, with spicy food and drink, cookery demonstrations and THAT chilli eating competition all returning for 2024.

Expect a spicy day out at Eastnor ChilliFest this May bank holiday weekend 2024.

Eastnor ChilliFest is sure to pack a punch when it returns to Eastnor Castle on Sunday 5 and Monday 6 May 2024.

Daring diners can get stuck into all things chilli related, with a wide variety of delicious food and drinks to get their tastebuds tingling; kids can try their hand at the children’s cookery school; and keen cooks can learn some new skills at the cookery demonstrations.

And of course, Eastnor’s celebration of the hot and spicy wouldn’t be complete without that chilli eating competition — the ultimate food challenge!

The fiery festival promises fun for the whole family and has plenty to keep children entertained, with stilt walking and fire shows from the castle’s resident entertainers; Bhangra dance workshops to get the whole family moving; and a sparkly pamper lounge, offering glitter eyes, face and body art for little festivalgoers.

Not forgetting live music and a smoothie bike for pedal-powered smoothie making on the Lower Terrace!

All of Eastnor’s usual attractions will be open too, with the opportunity to tackle the Knight’s Maze or junior obstacle course; run wild on the adventure playground; take a gentle stroll by the lakeside and explore the woodland; or follow the rope swing route to soar through the trees.

Tickets to Eastnor ChilliFest must be booked online in advance via eastnorcastle.com/eastnor-chillifest.
