About Brand Events
Brand Events is the highly creative business behind many of Britain’s most innovative live events, including the globally successful Top Gear Live show, CarFest, The Alfresco Theatre, The London Classic Car Show,Taste food festivals and Pub in the Park Festival.

About Pub in the Park
The brainchild of Tom Kerridge, Pub in the Park, celebrates everything there is to love about the glorious British pub; delicious food, award-winning chefs, chart-topping music, great drinks but above all else a fantastic time with friends and family.

Launched in 2017, Pub in the Park started as a one location event at Higginson Park, Marlow. With a stellar line up of chefs, pubs and music the festival sold out in 24 hours. In 2018 we took this unique concept to four towns: Marlow, Bath, Tunbridge Wells and Knutsford, attracting over 67,000 people across the four shows.

In 2019, Pub in the Park grew further touring 8 locations adding Chiswick, St Albans, Warwick and Leeds to its destinations. Due to Covid-19, Pub in the Park took a break in 2020, but returned successfully in 2021 safely entertaining 130,000 visitors in 8 locations. With increased market confidence, 2022 saw us deliver a post-covid improved 8-show-tour of epic content. For 2023, we have grown the festival tour to 10 locations.
