The Hot Sauce Society is bringing back London’s only hot sauce festival in a couple of months time. Their festival is headed to Peckham, South London, taking over a warehouse space catering to all chilli and spice fanatics’ needs.
Appearing for just one day only on Saturday, May 20 guests will be able to try hundreds of small batch and limited edition sauces from over thirty different UK makers and connoisseurs. So what else can you expect?
The Hot Sauce Festival will see the return of Hop, Burns and Black Presents Chilli Karaoke, and live music from Red Rooster Festival and DJs playing throughout the day. Hot sauce won’t be the only grub available, with street food being served by Caribbean caterers Dookies Grill, and beer and cocktails from the festival’s partner Kingfisher and Horse With No Name.

Tickets can be purchased on the door, so there’s no need to rush. Plus under 12s get in free.
Previous traders included Pat and Pinky’s, Hop Burns and Black, Lazy Scientist, Chilli Maven, and Condimaniac. There’s also a competition for the Best In Show prizes - so get ready for a hot competition.
