Rick Astley Plays Picnic in the Park


Michelin starred Chefs Tom Kerridge, Paul Ainsworth and Atul Kochhar will cook at Picnic in the Park – a brand new socially distanced food, music and comedy event with headliner Rick Astley from 24 to 27 September in Higginson Park, Marlow.

Visitors will be able to book their own picnic table in an enclosed area, have great food delivered directly to them, sit back and enjoy the show.

Tom Kerridge says, “We are so incredibly grateful to Rick. What a legend offering to perform not once but twice to accommodate his fans! He has inspired us to do more and we really hope you can join us. The line-up of live comedy and music we have managed to secure for the rest of the weekend is sure to keep the Marlow folks entertained.’’

Rick Astley, Jack Savoretti, Dara Ó Briain, Josh Widdicombe, Tom Allen, Reginald D Hunter, Mark Watson and more will all be performing over the weekend.

Picnic in the Park is the first of a programme of small events planned for the autumn and winter to entertain the town of Marlow and support local businesses. More events will be announced soon.
