Open to members of the public in it purely for the kudos of being a Great Kent Chilli Festival Chilli-eating Champion!
The chilli eating competitions take place at 4.00pm on both Saturday and Sunday.
The rules are simple: there 10 rounds, starting with mild, and the chillies get hotter, and hotter, and hotter!
You have 2 minutes to finish each chilli, and you may not drink anything during the competition, no matter how good that chilled pint of milk in front of you looks!
Entries open 2 weeks before the event, follow us on Facebook for updates.
