Chef Tom Kerridge’s touring food and music festival, Pub in the Park, will continue to pop up in green spaces across southern England this summer, with some of the country’s best chefs in tow.
The likes of Michel Roux Jr, Paul Ainsworth and Atul Kochhar will be cooking at the hugely successful socially-distanced event, which was launched in 2019.
Having already made four stops in 2021, Pub in the Park has four more to go before last orders, finishing off in Marlow, the Buckinghamshire town that is home to Kerridge’s two-Michelin-star pub, The Hand and Flowers.
Alongside the gastronomic offering, which includes pop-up pubs and restaurants, chef demos and produce, there will be live music from the likes of Craig David, Kaiser Chiefs and Beverley Knight.
Asked what he was looking forward to about the upcoming events, Kerridge said: “People being able to hang out, mix with all their friends. Restaurants, bars, exhibitors, musicians, roadie and DJs being able to hang out and start making some money.”
8,000 free tickets have also been made available for healthcare and key workers across the whole tour, to say thank you for their work during the pandemic.
Here are the dates and locations:
Chichester College, West Sussex (24 – 25 July)
Chiswick House and Gardens, London (3 – 5 September)
