Do you mean the Levens Hall one cancelled in 2011 and 2012 ? Can't find anything about one in 2013.

Email from Levens Hall "Sorry, no, the Chilli Fest will not be held this year.Geraldine Johnston, Assistant Administrator, Levens Hall & Gardens, www.levenshall.co.uk". I have emailed back to see if they're going to do it again, however have had no reply back from that.

I went to the chilli fest 3 years ago. I don't think they want to host it. The excuses given have been flooding (one year it WAS due to this) but subsequently they have said that its organisational issues to do with possible incremental weather. The way they have phrased it is "We wont be hosting it because we think it'll rain."

Very poor I think.

The Chilli Fest was actually very good. Such a shame it hasn't been back - I think this will be the 3rd year it's not happening. I'm sure if they wanted to host it they would have sorted out organisational issues by now.

No more Chilli Festivals at Levens Hall, however, the first Lakes Chilli Fest will be held at Dalemain Mansion on 2 & 3 August 2014 - shame there's nothing this year! http://www.dalemain.com/index.php
