Spice up your life this month in the town centre

Shoppers will be feeling the heat, when the Swindon Chilli Fiesta returns for the 4th year in a row, with even more chilli mayhem than before!

The event is FREE and is being organised once again by inSwindon BID Company, the town’s centre Business Improvement District and Chilli Fest UK and will take place at Wharf Green, from 10:30 am – 5:30 pm on Saturday, July 29th.


Some of the best chilli producers from across the UK will be there here to offer the very best of British chilli and will tempt you with fabulous chilli jams, chilli dips, chilli chutney, chilli chocolate and chilli beverages. For the less adventurous amongst us, there are some flavoursome but mild cooking sauces available too, but if you’re feeling brave, there will be extreme sauces and dips to try and take home. There’s even a range of chilli cocktails, beers and cider, which are not for the fainthearted!

Alexandra, Chilli Fest UK Organiser said: “You will be even more amazed by the vast array of chilli food and drinks on offer. Get ready to be “wowed’ and experience the full spectrum of flavours that these wonderful chillies provide. One of my favourites is the mouth-watering Chew Chew BBQ – you will love their tasty chilli meats and spicy fusions of sauces and it will leave you wanting more. If you’re thirsty, you can wash it all down with the exclusive chilli drinks, such as chilli mojito, chilli tequila beer and even chilli cider will be on offer”.
