Christchurch

9th & 10th June 2018 – 10.00 am to 5.00 pm 

We are delighted to announce that the amazing Cheese and Chilli Festival is back in Christchurch for 2018. The event in 2017 was a great success and the feedback was amazing.  The event in 2018 will bring an amazing array of tastes, colours and experiences to town and is a ‘must go to event’. Come rain or shine, the event will be fantastic!

 

The venue boasts a great space as it’s next to the airport and is a beautiful setting which helps make the atmosphere amazing.  We will again see more cheese and chillies on offer from around the world than previous years’, so come and enjoy.

Whilst the event this year will have a distinct focus on the cheese and chilli, there will be something for everyone at the event and is a perfect family day out with FREE children and adult activities on offer as well as fun rides etc (see home page for list of activities on offer).

If that wasn’t enough, there will be a fantastic Beer Festival all weekend from our very own Downton Brewery! Plus this year we have Dorset Mobile Bar’s fantastic Inflatable Pub and bar serving a wide selection of cider, lager, wine, seasonal cocktails and soft drinks – so there will be something for all the family and you can cool your palate down in our pub garden! To complement the party, with a dedicated stage area, live music from many local acts will be performed at the event.

This year, as well as Live Music, Falconry displays, Magic shows, Punch & Judy, Cooking Demonstrations, presentations and Tastings, we have PIG RACING on Saturday and the famous STRANGE CIRCUS who will be performing stunts including; SWORD SWALLOWING, FIRE JUGGLING, CONTORTION and ACROBATICS on the Sunday!
