People have the chance to make their tastebuds tingle this weekend by hot-footing it to a city festival with real bite!
Lincoln BIG is urging anyone who loves hot and spicy food to check out the Awesome Lincoln Chilli Fest 2015, which takes place in St Mark’s Square on Saturday (September 5), from 10.30am to 5.30pm.
The event, which will feature a range of stalls, giving shoppers and visitors the chance to try and buy everything from mild to extremely hot chilli products, promises to go down a storm – following an inaugural event a year ago.
A spokesman for Chilli Fest UK, which has been working with Lincoln BIG, said: “Producers from all over the UK will be exhibiting some of the hottest products in the UK, and maybe the world. They will be giving people a day of pure chilli mayhem.
“They can expect mild to extreme chilli sauces, chilli pickles, Naga masala cooking sauces, chilli jams, chilli chocolates, chilli dips, chilli pizza toppings and a cooking demonstration by Aunty Jee, using her sauces and more.
“They can experience a day of pleasuring pain and join the chilli revolution.”
For those wanting to “cool off”, local perfomer Strummin’ Steve Jackson has organised an afternoon of relaxed music in The Garden at St Mark’s, where people can enjoy listening to toe-tapping sounds from instrumentalists and singers, including four-piece band The Delta Dogs and guitarist Zeph Brown.
The artistes will be performing between 11am and 4.45pm.
