the biggest and best 'free to enter' chilli festival in the uk!

Hi everybody. Some bad news I’m afraid. Due to several things completely beyond our control we won’t be able to put on the Reading Chilli Festival in 2018.  😕
Our usual weekend in June that we’re allocated by the council is not available to us this year and I’m afraid that we couldn’t get everyone and everything together for any alternative dates that we could’ve potentially done. 
The festival is organised and run entirely by volunteers. An enormous amount of effort goes in each year to ensure that we bring you the best entertainment and the best stallholders we can possibly muster. The last thing we wanted to do is put on a sub-standard event on for the sake of it, so we’ve decided rather reluctantly to postpone the festival this year. But please be assured we’ll be back in 2019 bigger and better than ever!
