As befits an event backed by a Michelin-starred chef, Pub in the Park has a foodie focus.

Several of Yorkshire's top chefs have been invited to appear and give cookery demonstrations and run pop-up restaurants - among them Andrew Pern (The Star Inn at Harome), James Mackenzie (The Pipe and Glass at South Dalton) and Tommy Banks (The Black Swan at Oldstead and Roots in York).

You can try out Kerridge’s own food at The Hand & Flowers - a stand based on his pub, which was awarded two Michelin stars. Angela Hartnett's Italian restaurant Cafe Murano will also have a pop-up.

The festival has been running for three years at locations across the UK, but this is the first time it's come to Leeds.
