If you like it HAWT then you’ll wanna be in Peckham this May for the return of Hot Sauce Society, the only hot sauce festival in the capital. Over 30 hot sauce makers from across the country – including the likes of Pat and Pinky’s, Hop Burns and Black, Lazy Scientist, Chilli Maven, and Condimaniac – will be showing off their goods and competing for the Best In Show prizes and this year, tickets are only £2.

There’ll also be saucy street food from cult Caribbean caterers Dookies Grill, beer from Kingfisher on hand to keep you cool, live music from Red Rooster Festival and DJs spinning throughout the day so you can drop it like it’s hot. As for activities, you’ll get to test your limits in the “Hop Burns and Black present Chilli Karaoke” contest, where participants will attempt to sing while eating a scotch bonnet, or the Spicy Limbo tournament. Otherwise, if you’re not in a competitive mood but still want to get into the spicy spirit, head to the chilli face-painting booth instead. Tickets are available on the door, so no need to plan too far ahead.
