Organisers of Drive & Dine Theatre – Tom Kerridge and Park in the Park’s drive-in cinema, comedy and food event – at Luton Hoo Estate have added extra dates.

Tickets for the new venture between celebrity chef Tom Kerridge and the Pub in the Park team went on sale this morning (Wednesday).

Within two hours, an incredible 20,000 tickets had been sold across the drive-in cinema’s eight venues across the country.

Drive & Dine Theatre was due to run at Luton Hoo Estate from Tuesday, July 7 to Sunday, July 12.

However, due to demand promoters have now added a second week of movies at the venue north of Harpenden.

There will now be more blockbusters, family favourites and drive-in classics screened outdoors from Tuesday, July 14 to Sunday, July 19.

Among the second week’s movies you can see are Ghost, Jaws, Mamma Mia!, Grease, Moulin Rouge!, 1917 and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.

Chef Tom Kerridge, who has curated the food menu available at the drive-in, was delighted at how fast tickets sold today.

He posted on Instagram: “Thank you so much for such an incredible response to @driveanddinetheatre!
