A pub run by a former winner of The Great British Bake Off is set to feature in the line-up of Tom Kerridge's Pub in the Park in St Albans this year.
Celebrity chef Tom Kerridge's festival is set to return to Verulamium Park from Friday, September 11 to Sunday, September 13.
Organisers of the three-day food and live music extravaganza have announced the first pubs and restaurants that will be joining the team of superstar chefs on the 2020 tour.
Among those signed up to serve hungry festival-goers in St Albans is Candice Brown's The Green Man in Eversholt.
Former Hertfordshire PE teacher Candice won the seventh series of The Great British Bake Off in 2016.
She also appeared on Dancing on Ice, and now runs The Green Man near Milton Keynes with her brother Ben.
Former Chancellor's School teacher Candice is excited to be officially joining the PITP tour this summer.
She tweeted: "We are so excited to bring our little pub @greenmaneversh1 to @Pubinthepark_ St Albans this year!!!! #pitp"
"So proud of our little @greenmaneversh1 being alongside actual legends and my food heroes see you @Pubinthepark_ St Albans"
Pub in the Park is the biggest food and music festival tour in the UK, and more than 120,000 people attended across the country last year.
Tom Kerridge and his chef pals will be bringing tasty dishes and great live music to eight locations this summer, from May through to September.
At each venue there will be Michelin-starred and award-winning pubs and restaurants serving tasting dishes showing off their signature style.
Every event will celebrate the very best food the country has to offer, combined with fantastic live music, chef demonstrations, top quality shopping and other festival fun.
As well as The Green Man, the final St Albans leg of this year's Pub in the Park tour will feature Dom Robinson's Michelin-starred The Blackbird, Stephen Terry's The Hardwick, and Tom Kerridge's two Michelin-starred pub The Hand and Flowers in Marlow.
The cathedral city's very own Thompson St Albans and Dylans will also serve up dishes for punters.
The St Albans pop-up pub line-up so far also includes the Michelin-starred The Star Inn from Yorkshire and The Churchill Arms.
London restaurant Berners Tavern and Hawkyns by twice Michelin-starred chef Atul Kochhar are also on the menu.
The music line-up of old favourites, awesome girl bands and cult classics is still to be announced.
