If you think you can handle the heat, head along to the Fox & Ferret for a scorching 15-round chilli-eating contest. Or, even better, round up some friends and go along just to watch – the real pleasure comes from seeing the contestants suffer.
Thursday 11 June, 8pm-12am
Fox & Ferret, The Palms, Corner Marshland Road and New Brighton Road, Christchurch
Fun fact: the heat in chillies is the plant’s way of saving itself from being eaten by animals.
