Pub in the Park is back and better than ever, touring eight UK locations from June to September. An impressive array of chefs, musicians and artisan producers will all be in attendance to offer everything you have been hankering for during lockdown. Superstar chef Tom Kerridge is once again gathering together a host of his best chef pals and taking them on tour around the UK. James Martin, Andi Oliver, Michel Roux Jr, Marcus Wareing and Paul Aimsworth are just a few of the famous faces you can expect to see cooking up a storm.
As Pub in the Park veterans will know, menus created by some of the UK’s best restaurants will be available. Party goers can look forward to pubs and restaurants including Kerridge’s two Michelin starred The Hand & Flowers, Paul Ainsworth’s The Mariners Public House, Jodie Kidd’s The Half Moon Inn Kirdford, Andrew Pern’s The Star Inn, Stephen Terry’s The Hardwick, Atul Kochhar’s Restaurants including the amazing Vaasu and Sindhu, and more. Visitors can also expect performances from the likes of Craig David, Kaiser Chiefs, Beverley Knight, Ronan Keating, All Saints, Gabrielle, James Blunt, Faithless, Rudimental, with more to be announced.
Tom Kerridge said: “After the year we’ve had, I think everyone deserves a good-knees up – and what better way to do it than Pub in the Park! We’re so excited to be doing what we do best, bringing back our feel-good festival to the towns we love and filling it with lush music and proper good food!
“In every town we’ll be staging a special session called A Thousand Thank You’s, by providing free tickets to local health care heroes and key workers so they can let their hair down. That’s 8,000 Thank You's across the whole tour.”
Tom Kerridge continues: “Key workers have been the true superheroes of this pandemic, and we want to say thanks by offering 1000 complimentary tickets in each of our towns so these superstars can let their hair down while enjoying some awesome music and lush grub. We'll be working with NHS trusts, the emergency services, and local people to allocate these tickets.”
Chris Hughes, CEO at Brand Events, said: “We’re thrilled to be bringing back our brilliant food, drink and music festival to eight towns in 2021. All of our events are flexible, adaptable and ready to get even more free as the country begins to unlock. We’re ready to bring the public some much needed fun – watch out for more line-up announcements soon”.
