We are delighted to announce that the amazing Cheese and Chilli Festival is coming to Swindon in 2017 at Lydiard Park!

The event 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 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).


In the Demonstration Tent there will also be Mexicana Cheese cooking for us, Wine tasting, Chilli Olly wowing us, and Sea Spring Seeds educating us. 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 Worley’s Cider bar serving a wide selection of ciders and larger plus others. We also have A’Becketts Vineyard showcasing their amazing English wines – so there will be something for all the family.

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, Demonstrations and Tastings, we have amazing Stunt Shows being performed by Jez Avery.

Please see the schedule for notification of the bands playing at times etc.
