In true Pub in the Park style, party goers can look forward to some pubs and restaurants including Kerridge’s two Michelin starred The Hand and Flowers, Paul Ainsworth’s The Mariners Public House, The Churchill Arms, Atul Kochhar’s Restaurants including the amazing Vaasu and Sindhu, and more.

There will also be live music and performances from the likes of Beverley Knight, All Saints, Gabrielle, Roland Gift and Basement Jaxx.

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.”

The Pub in the Park team will also be staging a special session called 'A Thousand Thank You’s', by providing free tickets to local health care heroes and key workers.

Tom added: “Key workers have been the true superheroes of this pandemic, and we want to say thanks by offering 1,000 complimentary tickets in each of our towns so these superstars can let their hair down while enjoying some awesome music and lush grub.”

The event team will said they will 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!”

Pub in the Park is set to take place in St Nicholas Park from July 2 to July 4
