Beer we go again as thousands set to return for Pub in the Park
by William Mata | 4th December 2018
CELEBRITY chef Tom Kerridge is serving up a second helping of Pub in the Park for Tunbridge Wells festival-goers next summer.
Dunorlan Park will again host the food, drink and live music spectacle when it returns from July 12 to 14.
Last year 17,000 watched popstars Tom Odell, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Mel C and Billy Ocean perform songs in one of the town’s biggest events.
Visitors enjoyed temperatures of 26°C across the five sessions, which on Saturday and Sunday were split between the afternoon and evenings to avoid overcrowding.
A unique feature of Pub in the Park, which will be held in eight locations over weekends throughout the summer, is that it gives prominent billing to culinary stars performing seminars.
Acts appearing have not yet been announced, but organiser Tom Kerridge – a Michelin-starred chef himself – has promised big names and local talent.
“This years’ Pub in the Park festivals were so much fun, I cannot wait to bring the same brilliant standard of food, class chefs, ace music and awesome vibe to eight locations across the UK next year,” he said yesterday [Monday].
Other festival events will be held in Marlow, Leeds, Knutsford, Bath, Warwick, London and St Albans.
The line-up will be announced in January.
