The highly anticipated Pub in the Park event in Verulamium Park will return this year as councillors give full backing.
Organised by well-known TV chef Tom Kerridge, the food and music fesitval will run from September 13-15, 2019.
St Albans City & District Council today announced its full support for the festival which features pop up restaurants from Michelin Star chefs, demo’s, wine masterclasses and a music stage will take place in the central area of the city’s 100-acre Verulamium Park. Tickets are now available to purchase.
Deputy chief executive, Richard Shwe, said: “Having a world class chef such as Tom Kerridge choose to bring his celebration of Food and Music to St Albans is tremendously exciting and a real coup for our city.
“We have been in discussion about the event since last summer and are excited by the plans. We can now confirm the necessary requirements have been satisfied and we are looking forward to working in partnership with the organisers to make the festival a triumph for everyone in St Albans.”
Tom Kerridge commented: “As the spiritual home of the public house, and the city with most pubs per head, it is only natural that we would choose to close our tour in such a lush venue. We can’t wait to feed and entertain the people of St Albans in September.”
