Fabulous food and drink fused with fantastic live music as Pub in the Park made its long-awaited return to St Albans.

Superstar chef Tom Kerridge brought along his foodie friends to Verulamium Park for three days of live music and great grub, with more than 20,000 people attending over the course of the weekend.

James Martin and Simon Rimmer joined The Great British Bake Off winner Candice Brown's The Green Man and Cyrus Todiwala's Café Spice Namaste together with local restaurants THOMPSON St Albans and Lussmanns.

And there was music from the likes of All Saints, Dreams singer Gabrielle, The Lightning Seeds, British rockers Reef and the Kingdom Choir, the gospel choir that performed at Harry and Meghan's wedding.
