Get ready to scream “BIGGINS” while eating a home baked tart and supporting charity because Acting for Others just announced Christopher Biggins will return to the tents as a judge for the fourth annual right royal West End Bake Off taking place on Saturday 19th May (the same day His Royal Highness Prince Harry marries Meghan Markle- does that mean there will be wedding cake?!?).

Biggins joins the previously announced judges, Ruthie Henshall and Wendi Peters as they take to the tents to judge the cake creations from top West End Shows. The full line up of bakers are Mamma Mia!, The Play That Goes Wrong, The Phantom Of The Opera, Les Misérables, Book Of Mormon, Chicago, The Mousetrap, Chess, Young Frankenstein, 42nd Street, Hamilton, Strictly Ballroom, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, Witness For The Prosecution, H.R.Haitch, The Comedy About A Bank Robbery, The Great Gatsby.

The event is free for members of the public to attend, with judging beginning at 10.30, and the winners will be announced at 11am, when the Bake Off will be declared open for the public to buy cakes, signed posters and mingle with cast and crew from the shows. There will also be up close magic, The Royal Theatrical Fund choir and a tombola with the chance to win tickets to hit West End shows.

West End Bake Off is being held in aid of Acting for Others, a fundraising organisation for 15 UK theatrical and welfare charities.

For those unable to attend the event, Acting for Others can still be supported by donating at its Just Giving page: www.justgiving.com/ctcafo

It’s gunna be the BIGGINS event of the year!

If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices. If this differs from what we've written on the calendar, please bear with us, as those prices will update soon.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
