The Birmingham Chilli Festival returns to Brindleyplace on Saturday 16 September with the annual chill themed market and an extreme twist.

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:

It’s a great cause and if you think you can brave it, there are still abseil spaces available!

Of course, the Chilli Festival will be centred around the ever-popular chilli themed food and drink market, alongside live music and fiery entertainment.

The festival will take place between 11 am and 7 pm 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.

Eloise Davidson, Corporate Fundraising Manager at Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity, said:

Alongside the forward-facing abseil we’ll also be hosting a Teddy Bear’s picnic in Central Square as we prepare to say goodbye to The Big Sleuth bears.
