Chilli fest 2022

Join us for a day dedicated to the colourful, versatile and deliciously painful chilli plant!

Come and marvel at the gigantic specimens of the Fulham Allotment’s heaviest veg competition. The Fulham Horticultural Society will also be exhibiting a beautiful selection of flowers and produce by their top growers, who are available to give tips on growing perfect plants. There will be chilli tastings, home-grown chillies and chilli sauce for sale, and a chilli expert on hand for all your burning questions.

If chilli tasting isn’t your idea of a well-rounded meal, there are plenty of food options available including Well Kneaded Pizza, Hola Guacamole,  Free Range Jane and, of course, tasty chilli-themed offerings from the drawing room café.  If you’re after a delicious drink, Against the Grain Cider and Flamingo Lush have you covered!

Live music will be provided by Banda Bomba, an 8 piece Latin-jazz ensemble, serving up a spicy mix of salsa, jazz and funk grooves.

Seating will be limited so please bring your own picnic blankets, folding chairs and dancing shoes.
