The Hot Spot for Cool Families this Summer
The hot place for families this year is the East Midlands Chilli Festival being held at the Newark Showground NG24 2NY – 16th and 17th of August.
A great family event for chilli, non-chilli lovers, we already have an exciting array of stalls, including an impressive list of East Midlands and UK wide artisans, street food and drinks vendors. There is something for everyone.
During the two days, entertainment will consist of East Midlands bands, competitions and demonstrations, whilst on the Saturday evening there is a music festival.
For the chilli lover we have a chilli eating competition on both days and also on the Sunday a chilli cook-off – winners of which will receive £200 and entry into the National Cook-off finals.
It’s an event for children too, and for a nominal entry fee, activities such as theatre, a workshop, face painting and bouncy caste are free. There are also plenty of children’s competitions to keep them busy all day long.
Make a weekend of it… Newark Showground has camping and caravan facilities for individuals and rallies which should be pre-booked – Saturday only or Friday/Saturday options available.
Discounted tickets are now available from the website www.em-chillifest.co.uk along with caravan/camping bookings. If you plan a rally, please get in touch directly with Chilli Bob on 07901820914 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing you here.
