Music lovers who like it spicy are in for a treat this weekend.

Chichester’s West Dean Gardens’ three-day Chilli Fiesta, will let you samba and salsa until the late hours, while enjoying cookery demonstrations alongside the chance to sample food to make your taste buds tingle.

The music today ranges from Mariachi Los Amigos, to Phaxsi Coca from Bolivia through to Robin Jones and King Salsa.

While on Saturday there’s Latin-American singer Ranxerita, tribal rhythms from Manzana and a welcome return for the Latin-Congolese fusion of Grupo Lokito.

The weekend is rounded off on Sunday with jazz from The Sandwich, Andean Beats, Mariachi Tequila, and Cuban carnival rhythms courtesy of Orchestra Bombo.

The fun runs each day from 10.30am to 11pm.

Tickets for today cost £9.50, for Saturday and Sunday they are £12. Children’s tickets on all three days are £1.
