Sinful Sauces at Benington Lorship Chilli Festival!
Sinful Sauces have just been accepted to the Benington Lordship Chilli Festival this year on the 28th & 29th August. We visited the festival last year as punters and loved it, so we’re very excited to be coming back this year as stallholders. We’d love to see you guys there!
Started in 2006 the Chilli Festival is a very popular family event attracting thousands of visitors over two days, offering a chance to buy Chilli plants, products and sample foods from around the world. Stalls are set up in the sheltered courtyard and Rose Garden where many different dishes are cooked fresh. A wide range of refreshments is provided to help you cool down, including cold beers and ice creams.
The garden is open as normal so after sampling the produce visitors can relax in the grounds. To see photos from the 2009 festival click here
