In pictures: Chilli Fiesta brought the heat over the weekend

Despite the mixed weather conditions, thousands visited West Dean Gardens over the weekend for a fiesta full of spice, entertainment and chilli activities.

The unique festival provided a wide range of activities with a chilli theme including cookery demos with contestants Miranda Gore Browne and Steven Carter-Bailey from Great British Bake Off and live Latin music with professionals from BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing.
