Miranda Martin, Director at Brand Events, said: “Following the sell-out success in 2021, Pub in the Park is delighted to announce the world-class chefs and restaurants that will be rolling into Brighton this Summer.

“The ultimate food and music festival will visit nine locations on its 2022 tour – including new towns, Wimbledon and Brighton – making it the largest touring festival of its kind in the UK.

“The man himself, Tom Kerridge will be co-hosting the three day event in Brighton alongside popular celebrity chef Simon Rimmer.

“The first music names for Brighton have been announced as critically acclaimed synth pop band The Human League (Friday evening), DJ set from iconic electronic duo Basement Jaxx (Saturday evening) and singer song writing superstar Gabrielle (Lazy Sunday session). As well as one fifth of arguably the greatest girl band of all time and now solo singing sensation Melanie C (Saturday afternoon).

“Tom Kerridge will once again be bringing together his band of incredible chef pals. Expect to see some of the hottest new talent in the food world, your TV favourites and some highly acclaimed Michelin-starred names.

“At each location, there’ll be award-winning pubs and restaurants serving tasting dishes showing their signature style – from local favourites to revered eateries from farther afield – giving you the chance to savour food you might not otherwise get to sink your teeth into.

“Every event will feature plenty of festival fun - with chef demonstrations, the finest produce, top quality shopping and a kid’s area to keep the little ones entertained.”

Tom Kerridge said “We’re so excited to be bringing some seriously top notch chefs and their incredible pubs and restaurants to the towns we love this year. Food is at the very heart of what we do. I’ve had a sneak peek at the menus and I’ve definitely got my eye on a few of the dishes - we can’t wait for you to try them!”

Pub in the Park will be in Preston Park, Brighton from September 16-18
