Top chefs from across Kent have been invited back by celebrity chef Tom Kerridge to cook at his Pub in the Park festival when it returns to the county this summer.
The festival, which combines food, drink with live music, will be held at Dunorlan Park in Tunbridge Wells this July for a third year running.
Tom, well known for his Lose Weight for Good TV series, will present his own food from his Marlow-based pub, the Hand & Flowers, at the event.
Alongside him will be the Small Holding from Kilndown, the kitchen for which is led by Will Devlin.
The Tanner brothers, Chris and James, who run the Kentish Hare in Bidborough near Tunbridge Wells, have also been asked back.
And the Compasses Inn at Crundale, where Rob Taylor heads the kitchen, will also be returning.
Also represented at Dunorlan Park will be the Half Moon Inn, which is former model Jodie Kidd's pub in West Sussex; Tim Allen Flitch of Bacon in Essex; the Churchill Arms in London; the Star Inn in Plumstead and Café Spice Namaste in Whitechapel.
The aim of the event is to bring tasty dishes and live music for a relaxed and intimate gathering. At each venue around the country, Michelin-starred and award-winning pubs and restaurants will serve tasting dishes showing their signature style.
Pub in the Park will be held at Dunorlan Park in Tunbridge Wells from Friday, July 10 to Sunday, July 12.
Pre-sale tickets go on sale on Wednesday, February 5 and general release will be on Friday, February 7.
