Michelin-starred chef and TV personality Tom Kerridge’s food festival, Pub in the Park, is back for 2018 in Marlow, Bath, Tunbridge Wells and Knutsford, for four weekends over the summer.
The first ever Pub in the Park festival took place in the beautiful town of Marlow in May 2017, with tickets selling out in 24 hours. Following on from this, Tom decided to expand the festival to make more tickets available - but without losing the local feel - which has been done by extending the run in Marlow to include an extra day, and introducing Pub in the Park to three new locations: Bath, Tunbridge Wells and Knutsford.
Every event will celebrate the very best food the country has to offer, combined with great live music, chef demonstrations, top quality shopping and other festival fun. On top of nationally-famous chef and music names, each event will celebrate the local community in the form of brilliant local artisans, pubs, local foodie heroes and musicians.
The festival recently released its amazing line-up of the UK’s best culinary and music talent - including Jamie Cullum, Mel C, Razorlight, Billy Ocean, Tom Odell and Sophie Ellis-Bextor taking to the stage, and superstar chefs Josh Eggleton, Angela Hartnett, Paul Ainsworth and Tom himself cooking up a storm. Tom and his fellow chef mates will be bringing a selection of top pubs and restaurants to serve their own versions of the best pub grub the UK has to offer for just £5 a dish, so everyone can try a few.
Texas, Will Young and KT Tunstall will also be playing at the festivals, and other exciting chef demos include GBBO winner Candice Brown. Food will also be served up from pop up pubs, including Tom’s two pubs, The Hand & Flowers and The Coach, as well as The Sportsman – which was just named the UK’s best pub in the Top 50 Gastropubs Awards.
Tom Kerridge said “I am delighted to be able to share the magic of Pub in the Park with the beautiful British places of Bath, Tunbridge Wells and Knutsford. Expect great food, brilliant music and an ace day out.”
