Following the government’s roadmap announcement, the team behind Pub in the Park, spearheaded by celebrity chef Tom Kerridge, has launched this new event.

There will be an exclusive Chefs Menu crafted by some of the most exciting and well-known chefs in the UK, hand-picked by the Pub in the Park team.

The event is described as a Covid-compliant drive-in experience, with the setup relaxing as lockdown rules relax; eventually allowing visitors to sit outside in their own private patch to enjoy the show.

Friday nights at the Theatre will play host to Mark Watson’s Carpool Comedy Club, where comedy fans will be able to enjoy a stellar line-up.
