The HOTTEST Day of the year is back at the Bank Hotel. After the huge success of the inaugural Chilli Festival in 2017, we are upping the antics and taking things to an even hotter level!

There'll be Chilli eating competitions, homemade hotsauce stalls, chilli inspired beers and hot jazz from the Abel Cross trio along with plenty of fiery food specials to keep the palate hot! And of course the legendary Tora Hymen will be back as MC for the day.
