Tom Kerridge’s Pub in the Park is sadly not taking place this year, but the team behind it is launching a brand-new experience: the Drive & Dine Theatre.

This will involve a series of drive-in film and food experiences, visiting different locations across the UK throughout July. Guests will be able to choose from a selection of family films, classics and new releases while tucking into a menu created by Marlow-based chef Tom Kerridge – all to be enjoyed in the comfort of your own car.

Top-quality comfort food is the focus of the menu, which features dishes including maple bacon cheeseburgers, chicken tikka masala and vegan chilli burritos, alongside a selection of drinks. Diners can round off the experience with sweet treats such as a ‘TKO Biscuit Cheesecake’ and a ‘Millionares Chocolate Pot’.

Films on offer include recent blockbusters 1917 and Knives Out, family favourites The BFG and Aladdin, and drive-in classics Grease, Back to the Future and Jaws.

Personal speaker systems will be provided for each car and food will be served straight to your parking bay – so all you need to do is pull up, sit back and enjoy the show on the world’s largest mobile HD LED screen. To comply with government regulations and ensure a risk-free environment, cars will be spaced out, staff will wear protective equipment and tickets will be checked from a distance.

Kerridge said: ‘I am so excited to announce a great new event created to have a load of fun in a way that is safely suited to current times. Come and eat some good grub, catch some quality movies, and make some new memories with your loved ones.’

Tickets go on sale on 10 June. Each screening costs £17.50 for adults and between £5.50-£7.50 for children.
