Reading Chilli Fest

15th June

Things are hotting up! Reading's annual Chilli Festival is almost here! 

This year, the festival will take place on 15 June from 10-5pm along Broad Street.

The festival will offer over 40 stalls, food, and even a chilli cook-off!  Local artisan companies will be bursting with products from around the world, from chilli sauces, to plants, spice blends, to chilli beer and cider - Reading's Chilli Fest is the place to be!  If that's not enough to tempt you, there will even be a low and slow BBQ, an exciting vegetarian fare, competitions, and live music. Find out more here 

Why not travel to the festival by bus? Take your time without worrying about the parking metre and enjoy everything this amazing festival has to offer! Don't forget, if you are under the age of 18, you can get up to 1/3 off your travel with boost, and if there are up to four of you going, why not buy a group ticket for £6 off-peak?
