Welcome to Holker Hall & Gardens


Things are hotting up for the first Holker Chilli Fest…

Bringing the fiery world of chillies to the beautiful Holker Estate for the first time, Holker Chilli Fest is the newest event on the Holker calendar.

Event Date:

13th & 14th September 2014

With vibrant entertainment artists, food from around the world, and a wide range of stalls selling chilli-inspired produce, the two day festival is guaranteed to get temperatures rising.  

At the centre of the chilli-mania each day will be the much anticipated chilli eating competition hosted by famous chilli expert ‘Darth Naga’, known for his numerous TV appearances talking about his favourite subject, Chillies!  For the less brave, there will be a feast of culinary delights on offer to tempt your taste buds, with everything from curries to crepes and churros.   

Chilli enthusiasts will be spoilt for choice with over 30 stalls selling specialist chilli produce from sauces and seeds, to pickles and popcorn, as well as local artisan food producers and a variety of quirky gifts.  Throughout the day there will be live music and street performances, cooking demonstrations, and children’s activities to keep the whole family entertained.  

Jillian Rouse, Visitor Services Manager at Holker Hall & Gardens said, “We’re delighted to be adding the Holker Chilli Fest to our calendar of events here at Holker Hall this year.  It will offer our visitors a completely different experience and promises to be a fun and lively weekend with some fantastic food and entertainment”. 

Join us this September at Holker Chilli Fest - a fantastic day out for chilli enthusiasts, foodies and families alike.
