Food for thought

Tom Kerridge’s sell-out festival will be back in Marlow this summer and is also expanding to three additional locations this year.

The first Pub in the Park festival took place Marlow in May 2017. Headed up by TV chef Tom Kerridge, and with a top line-up of chefs, pubs and music, the festival sold all 18,000 tickets within 24 hours. Building on the success of 2017, this year will see Tom take Pub in the Park on tour around the UK.

He and his fellow chef mates will be visiting four English towns across the country. At each venue, he’ll be bringing staff from his his Michelin-starred pubs, The Hand & Flowers and The Coach, plus a selection of other top UK pubs and restaurants, to serve their most popular dishes. Every event will celebrate some of the best food the country has to offer, combined with live music, chef demonstrations, shopping and other festival fun. On top of the national chef and music names, each event will celebrate the local community in the form of local artisans, pubs, local food experts and musicians.

Pub in the Park will be taking place on the following dates at the following venues:

  • Marlow, Higginson Park 17th-20th May
  • Bath, Royal Victoria Park 8th-10th June
  • Tunbridge Wells, Dunorlan Park 6th-8th July
  • Knutsford, The Heath 7th-9th September
