We had a fab time at the Tunbridge Wells Pub in the Park the year before last.
Possibly a little too fab (two day hangover I am looking at you). I would highly recommend it and hope we are invited back again this year. You can read my review here Pub in the Park Tunbridge Wells
Pub in the Park is getting the band back together! They’ll be heading back to Dunorlan Park in Tunbridge Wells, Kent between July 9-11 bringing amazing chefs, musicians, artisanal producers, and most of all, you! Pretty much everything you’ve been hankering for during lockdown is back on the menu – with actual people.
It’s the ultimate foodie festival – superstar chef James Martin will once again be bringing together his band of incredible chef pals together to serve up incredible food all weekend.
In true Pub in the Park style, party goers can look forward to some stunning pubs and restaurants including Kerridge’s two Michelin starred The Hand & Flowers, Jodie Kidd’s The Half Moon Inn Kirdford, Atul Kochhar’s Restaurants including the amazing Vaasu and Sindhu, and locals The Small Holding and The Kentish Hare.
It wouldn’t be Pub in the Park without some top-notch live music, so expect performances from the likes of Craig David, James Blunt, Beverley Knight, Lightning Seeds, Judge Jules, Toploader, The James Martin Band, The Craig Charles Funk and Soul Club, Nerina Pallet*…plus 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 continued: “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.
Pub in the Park has been designed with these times in mind and has been awarded the Visit Britain ‘Good to Go’ certification, meaning the tour will have covid-safety measures in place if needed, but as government restrictions ease so will the event’s.
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 and tickets on-sale soon!”
