East Midlands Chilli Bob Festival

One of the UK’s largest chilli festivals is set to return for the first time since the pandemic with a new, bigger location.
Neal Price, son of the late Bob Price ¬— known as Chilli Bob ¬— is bringing the festival back for 2022 in tribute to his dad, who died in 2019.
It has moved from the family’s former chilli farm to Southwell Racecourse in Nottinghamshire and will take place from 8-10 July 2022.
“It was the number one chilli festival in the UK, attracting over 4000 visitors annually, and I just want to carry it on and make my dad proud,” said Neal. “Everyone loves it so I would like to bring it back in homage to him and for all our regular Festival goers.”
After teaming up with The League of Fire, the world governing body for competitive chilli eating, an official world championship in chilli eating will take place on the Saturday, as well as other chilli eating competitions.
Neal hopes the UK ‘Chilli Queen’ Shahina Waseem will take part and continue her record-breaking aim of winning 100 competitions undefeated.
The weekend will be full of live music with more than 70 stalls across the chilli and non-chilli market. With a focus on youngsters, there will be a large family area with a circus theme.
There will be jugglers and high wire walkers performing as well as a circus tent full of family-friendly activities and competitions.

Camping is available on site, with 500 pitches for tents, campervans and caravans.
