Birmingham Chilli Festival set to return
The Birmingham Chilli Festival will return next month.
It will be in Brindleyplace on September 16 with not only the annual chill themed market but an extreme twist that includes nerve-wracking challenges, physical activities and of course, plenty of spice.
This year, the Birmingham Chilli Festival will be raising the stakes with a 100ft forward-facing abseil from number 4 Brindleyplace to raise funds for one of their 2017 charity partners, Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity.
Nathan Sanghera, Marketing and Events Executive at Brindleyplace, said: “We wanted to shift gears and take this year’s Chilli Festival to the extreme. People can face their fears, quite literally, head on, whilst raising money for Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
"It’s a great cause and if you think you can brave it, there are still abseil spaces available. The challenges don’t stop there though, we’ll also have a rock climbing wall in Oozells Square and those looking for something closer to the ground will be able to get up close and personal with a host of reptiles (including a robotic dragon) – if they dare!”
The festival will take place between 11am and 7pm on Saturday 16 September in Central Square at Brindleyplace, with some of the market stalls opening a day earlier, on Friday 15 September, warming up for the main event.
