Pub in the Park

Tom Kerridge's homage to the humble pub is back in 2021 with two London dates. Peter Gray reports.

A laid back celebration of the best food, drink, and music in the UK, Pub in the Park has grown considerably since its early days. Indeed, with over 120,000 Brits attending the festival in 2019, the event is now the biggest food and music festival tour in the land,

Now, following a one year break for the pandemic, PITP is back, with two London dates already pencilled in for the summer. The festival will be in Dulwich on the 26th & 27th of June 2021 and in Chiswick from the 3-5th of September 2021 with tickets for both events on sale now.

The festival is the brainchild of Michelin starred chef Tom Kerridge, who is best know for gastro pubs like The Hand and Flowers, The Coach and The Butcher’s Cap. Kerridge came up with The Pub in the Park concept in 2017 and the event has not looked back since.

An unashamedly affectionate celebration of the British pub and all the great things about pub life, Pub in the Park showcases the food, drink, music, and atmosphere of the UKs best boozers.

This year’s event will feature the usual mix of bars and restaurant pop ups, with Kerridge’s The Hand & Flowers, Jason Atherton’s Little Social and Atul Kochhar’s Kanishka taking part.

Those who love to shop will not be dissapointed, either, with the inclusion of the Shopping Village and the Artisan Food Market. Music at the event, meanwhile, will come from the likes of Kaiser Chiefs, Gabrielle, and Beverley Knight.
