It’s finally summer, which means it’s time for the popular food festival Pub in the Park.

The brainchild of Tom Kerridge, Pub in the Park celebrates everything there is to love about the British pub; local food, award-winning chefs, live music, drinks but above all else a fantastic time with friends and family.

Award-winning pubs and restaurants will ‘pop-up’ around each park serving dishes for guests to get stuck into – from your local favourites to far-flung nationally-renowned eateries that you might not have the opportunity to pay a visit.

Be inspired to re-create incredible new recipes at home or keep the little ones entertained in the dedicated Kids Area with crafts, games, and more – there’s plenty for all to do.

No pub would be complete without a bar, Pub in The Park has quite a few of them in site ready to make everything from cocktails to fizz, spirits to wines, and of course the beers.

There is also an Artisan Food Market for customers to purchase specialty ingredients and produce from selected retailers.

In addition to the food and drink Pub in the Park also promises a great entertainment program with soundtracks courtesy of hit-makers – expect your old favourites, platinum selling bands and cult classics!

Pub and restaurant brands, retailers and music differs depending on the location and key dates:

· Pub in the Park Chiswick: 28-30 June

· Pub in the Park Reigate: 12-14 July

· Pub in the Park St Albans: 6-8 September

Pub in the Park also announced an All-Star Charity Night Gala at Chiswick Launch Event on the 28th June. The event will be a star studded affair raising money for those in need.

David & Georgia Tennant have joined forces with Chef Tom Kerridge, to stage an all-star charity gala evening at Pub in the Park Chiswick, with a host of guest talent in aid of former PM Gordon Brown’s charity – The Multibank.

A Multibank is a clothes bank, bedding bank, baby bank, hygiene bank and furniture bank all rolled into one.

The idea is simple: companies have surplus goods that people need, and local charities know the people who need them. The Multibank initiative connects the two to reduce the effects of both poverty and environmental waste.

The 28th expects to see a line-up of stars from music, food and television, including David and Georgia Tennant, Tom Kerridge, Arabella Weir, Claudia Winkleman, Romesh Ranganthan, Lenny Henry, Stephen Mangan, Gaby Roslin, Simon Rimmer, Dr Ranj Singh, Jose Pizarro, Matt Tebbutt, Mark Wogan, Andrea McLean, Kate Thornton and many more.

The event will also welcome special guest attendance from Multibank founder, former Prime Minster, Gordon Brown.

These stars will appear on stage and around the festival, plus there will be the usual Michelin starred pop-up restaurants and headline music on the main stage from De La Soul, The Feeling, Stereo MCs and a Vernon Kay DJ set.

Multibanks are being established across the UK to fight poverty and maximise recycling of unused goods.

A Multibank is much like a food bank, instead offering clothes, toiletries, bedding, baby goods, hygiene items, and furniture – essential things many families simply cannot afford yet desperately need.

They often operate alongside existing food banks.

The evening aims to raise between £50,000 and £75,000 for the charity which will be used both nationally and to support the newest Multibank in Greenford, West London, opened just last week.

Tickets are from £55.00 with £10.00 per ticket going to the charity and Super VIP Party tickets are £300.00, with £250.00 of the ticket sale donated to the charity.
