Pub in the Park – A THOUSAND THANK YOU’S

| |

In an amazingly generous gesture, Pub in the Park organisers are giving away 1000 tickets for the Marlow event (which takes place 16th – 19th September). These are FREE tickets to say “thank you” to front line workers, and in total they are giving away 8,000 tickets across all their 8 venues!

From NHS workers and Carers to Refuse Teams, to Teachers and cleaners – any of the essential members of our communities will be eligible to receive a ticket.

The PITP team have been working with NHS trusts, the emergency services, and local organisations to allocate these tickets , but in each town they will be reserving 200 tickets (100 pairs) for personal nominations from members of the public.

Tickets from public nominations will be allocated on a first come, first served basis and people can nominate at the Pub in the Park website from Tue June 1st :

Key workers will receive tickets to the evening session on Thursday 16th September.

More background from the Pub in the Park team:

From the NHS to Teachers to Volunteers, our key workers have gone above and beyond in the last year to keep things going, helping us all through tough times and getting us back on track.

Dr Nick Sherwood, Critical Care Consultant and Emergency Planning Clinical lead for Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust was looking for a way he could thank all his hardworking staff for their incredible heroism over the last year, so he got in touch with Pub in the Park to see what might be possible.

There have been so many heroic acts – we can’t even begin to recognise them all, but it did make us want to find a way to say thank you. Inspired by Dr Nick Sherwood, his staff and all the other key workers, Tom Kerridge and the Pub in the Park team will be giving away a total of 8,000 tickets to local heroes across the summer in a campaign called A Thousand Thank You’s.

Tom Kerridge said, “Key workers have been the true superheroes of this pandemic, and we want to say thanks by offering 1000 complimentary tickets per region we visit so these superstars can let their hair down while enjoying some awesome music and lush grub.”

Dr Nick Sherwood said “The past year has been one of the hardest for everyone around the world, and especially front line workers. I know from first-hand experience how hard doctors and nurses have worked in the past year, and just how much they have given up for their jobs. So quite simply I wanted to thank my team for being superheroes, and what better way than with the help of my great friends at Pub in the Park”.
