THE Bank Holiday weekend stretches before us, which means (with a bit of luck) the weather will be scorchio.
But even if the weather does its worst, you can still have a decidedly hot weekend – just pay a visit to Frists Garden Centre, which is hosting its third annual Chilli festival.
While the plants are undoubtedly the stars of the show, Frosts is also hosting Mexian music from Mariachi el Mexicano and live cooking demonstrations will tell you how to get the best out of your fiery friends!
Plenty of types of chilli’s will be available to purchase, and if you think you are man (or woman) enough, you’ll be able to purchase some of the worl’d most scorchio – Naga and Trinidad Scorpion....if you are going to take one of those beuaties home, we suggest you ready a large jug of water too!
The Garden Room Restaurant will be serving up a menu of chilli-chomping opportunity, including the world’s hottest chilli.
All the plants available have been grown on site at Frosts, and there really is something to suit all palates – from the cool Caldero ti the fiery Scotch Bonnet...
The festival of fire, if you take our meaning, will roll daily from Saturday though to Monday, 10am to 4pm daily.
Admission is free.
> Of course, you don’t have to go Chilli mad.
The leading garden centre also hosts the usual blooming fantastic array of flowers, plants, furniture, fresh produce and loads more besides.
