After a sell-out debut in St Albans this September, Pub in the Park is set to take place in Verulamium Park for its second year.

Tom Kerridge and his superstar chef pals will visit eight venues in the UK in 2020, with more incredible food, world-class chefs, chart-topping musicians and summer vibes.

PITP will arrive in St Albans from Friday, September 11 to Sunday, September 13, 2020.

There will be Michelin-starred and award-winning pubs and restaurants serving tasting dishes showing their signature style.

Every event on the tour will celebrate the very best food the country has to offer, combined with great live music, chef demonstrations, top quality shopping and other festival fun.

This year's three-day feast in St Albans included musical performances from Tom Odell, Razorlight, Scouting for Girls, Toploader and Will Young.

More information, including on-sale dates and the PITP 2020 line-up, will be announced in January.

Tom Kerridge said: "Wow, what a summer! Pub in the Park was an absolute blast.
