We are very proud to be hosting the 6th Reading Chilli Cook-off at the festival this year!

The UK Chilli Cookoff Association will be taking over the Town Hall square with teams from across the county and beyond competing for the title of 2017 Reading Chilli Cook-off champion!

Teams will have 4 hours to cook a gallon of chilli from scratch. Each team's Chilli will be judged by a panel of UKCCA Chilli experts. Entry fee is £10 per team (teams can be made up of any number of people). First prize is £150, second prize £75 and third prize £25!!

Is your chilli good enough to be a winner? Competing in a cookoff is easy and fun!

To enter, please head over to the UKCCA website and register your team. They'll get back to you as soon as possible with an information pack and entry fee details.

Don't forget to check out the rules tab for more information on competing and what you'll need to bring with you. Remember they can probably lend you some equipment but they'll need plenty of notice!!

The winners of the 2017 UK Grand Final will win a whopping £1000 and will also qualify for the World Chilli Championships in America!
