The UK’s biggest food and music festival is making a return to Preston Park this summer Fri 14 July – Sun 16 July. For 2023, Pub in The Park have added an extra two locations to their tour so that there are ten in total including St Albans and Chiswick as well as Brighton.
The premise of Pub in The Park is to celebrate the hospitality of the great british pub and live music.
Founded and hosted by chef Tom Kerridge, there will be award-winning restaurants, chef demonstrations, and delicious food. 2023 welcomes Ainsley Harriot, Si King from the Hairy Bikers, Ed Gamble and Nisha Katona across the venues.
Friday night music headliners are Sugababes while Soul II Soul Soundsystem will also perform, and Judge Jules. The Saturday line up consists of The Brand New Heavies, Norman Jay, and Toploader in the afternoon. Plus, Stereo MCs, Example and Happy Mondays on the Saturday Evening. On Sunday, see Two Weeks in Nashville, The Craig Charles Funk & Soul Club, Dodgy, and Gabrielle headlining.
When it comes to good food, Pub in The Park knows who to invite.
Simon the Butcher, Adam Purnell aka Shropshire Lad and Andy Clarke will be joining Tom Kerridge in Brighton. Find these chefs at The Firepit sessions (live cooking zone), at the bookshop, or visit one of their pop-up on site restaurants.
The pop-up restaurants offer exclusive menus especially for the event. Some restaurants coming to Preston Park include Cin Cin, The Chilli Pickle, The Hand and Flowers ** (by Tom Kerridge), Pitch by Kenny Tutt, Tapas Brindisa, and The Kentish Hare.
The fun does not stop with chefs and tunes as there is more fun for the whole family to immerse in.
For example, The Super Pirates bring adventure via storytelling and theatre. There are also inflatables and a family disco rave, plus plenty of games. Have a go on the Helter Skelter which is new for 2023, or get some immaculate views from the Big Wheel. Kids and family tickets are available, while 0-5 year olds go free.
