Following on from the huge success of touring his Pub in the Park foodie festival in 2018, the Michelin-starred chef has announced it will be even bigger and better for 2019 with eight events across the UK, including one in St Albans in September.

The award-winning pub proprietor will be bringing his chef mates to the party for a relaxed and intimate gathering in Verulamium Park from Friday, September 13 to Sunday, September 15.

The festival will support and celebrate local talent, as well as presenting some of the biggest names in food and music.
