Now in its sixth year, the festival features a host of stalls showcasing the best chilli products, food and competitions, as well as live music and fairground rides.

Among the highlights is the world champion chilli eating competition when two of the biggest names in chilli-eating will go head to head ­— and you can challenge them if you dare.

UK Chilli Queen Shahina Waseem will face off against Mr Spicy, Arturo Rencricca, on the main stage on Saturday evening.

Shahina will also be hosting a chicken wing eating competition during the festival.

Also on the main stage throughout the weekend will be live music, ranging from Hot Dog Brass Band to Hot Red Chilli Peppers and Renegades Of Rage UK.

Day tickets and weekend passes are available from em-chillifest.com/

Camping is available.
