CHEL­TENHAM’S Street Chilli Fi­esta is re­turn­ing to the heart of the town for a third year.

The event will be tak­ing place on Satur­day, June 1 from 10am at Cam­bray Place.

Vis­i­tors have the op­por­tu­nity to try a se­lec­tion of the coun­try’s best chill­ibased produce and buy a range of prod­ucts.

This year’s fi­esta will also see the re­turn of the ‘Clash of the Titans’, an ex­treme eat­ing com­pe­ti­tion which isn’t for the faint-hearted and for adults only. Start­ing from mild and flavour­ful the con­tes­tants work their way up the chilli heat list.

Last year’s win­ner, Shahina Waseem, came from Lon­don to take part and proved she could beat the heat earn­ing her a place in the Clash of the Titans ‘Hall of Fame’.

The event is be­ing or­gan­ised jointly by Chilli Fest UK and Chel­tenham Busi­ness Im­prove­ment Dis­trict.

BID Direc­tor Ke­van Black­ad­der said: “This is one of our smaller but most pop­u­lar events.

It’s great to be able to buy some­thing dif­fer­ent and then be able to visit the shops, restau­rants and other busi­nesses in the town.

“There will be some pop­u­lar stalls re­turn­ing and a great se­lec­tion of new prod­ucts from a va­ri­ety of fam­ily-run busi­nesses.”
