13 - 15 September 2019
Verulamium Park, St. Albans
Renowned for an endless string of soulful yet socially aware hits ...Forgotten Town, Ideal World, Born Again, Harvest for the World, Whats in a Word, Hooverville, Words and Father The Christians enjoyed huge acclaim in the late 80s and early 90s and often confused people with their band name (in fact just the brothers surname with absolutely no religious connotation!)
Celebrating over 30 years since their debut album THE CHRISTIANS – they’re back! headed by lead singer Garry Christian (who still deserves the Daily Mirror’s description as having ‘one of the finest voices in pop’ and doesn't seem to have aged a day in 28 years) is in better form than ever backed by superb harmonies from the band. BBC BBC Radio 2 DJ Chris Evans described THE CHRISTIANS set on air in December as 'The Best gig I've ever been to'
On the back of a hugely successful recent tour in 2017 and a brand new album Sings&Strings (out now) 2018 sees THE CHRISTIANS back on the road and appearing at a festival or venue near you throughout the UK and Europe.
I would certainly say Pub in the Park is up there with one of best things I have ever done, the atmosphere and buzz over those 3 days was just electric and I felt so lucky to be a part of it all. All in all, we served around 4000 dishes over the 3 days, the most popular being the Mackerel Taco which sold out on each session, I couldn’t have asked for a better crowd though as they were all willing to try the other dishes we had to offer. One of my favourite moments had to be that I got to celebrate my birthday which was on the Sunday In such an incredible way, meeting a huge amount of kind and wonderful people as well as watching The Milk who are one of my favourite bands.
Last year’s Pub in the Park festivals were so much fun, I can’t wait to bring excellence in food, world class chefs, ace music and an awesome vibe to eight locations across the UK this year.
