Steven Carter-Bailey, Beverley Knight and Alexia McIntosh to judge West End Bake Off 2020

The West End Bake Off is back for another year! As the coronavirus pandemic has sadly made holding a physical event impossible, the West End Bake Off team is taking the competition online and handing the rolling pins to you, the fans.

Instead of West End Shows making and selling their best bakes, this year it will be down to you to bake and photograph your theatrical baking creations using the hashtag #WEBO2020 on Twitter and Instagram.

Celebrity judges Steven Carter-Bailey, Beverley Knight and Alexia McIntosh will pick their favourite to be crowned Star Webo Baker 2020.

So get your baker’s hats on and get cooking your best musical theatre-inspired bake. Though there is no entrance fee, in the true spirit of previous West End Bake Off’s, the organisers are asking for a suggested minimum donation of £2 per entry to take part. 100% of this will go to The Theatre Artists Fund – set up to support artists on stage and off during the current crisis.

Beverley said:

“I am chuffed to be doing my bit to raise money for the Theatre Artists Fund by being a judge on this years Virtual West End Bake off! Seeing as I can’t actually taste any of the goodies, I guess I am reluctantly doing my bit  for my waistline too, argh! It is brilliant to see that time and time again, our community comes together in times of need and always with an open heart. Good luck to everyone taking part!”

Alexia said:

“I’m thrilled that I’ve been asked to judge on this year’s virtual West End Bake Off! It’s such a tough time for everyone in the theatre world. I hope we can raise lots of money to help those in need. Can’t wait to get started – Birmingham’s answer to Paul Hollywood, here I come!”

Steven said:

“I’m honoured to be judging for this years’ Virtual West End Bake Off and cannot wait to see what you’ve all created. Theatre and baking are my two great loves and I’m so excited to bring the two together at this wonderful event.”

Entries will open at 10am on Wednesday 5 August and will close at midnight on Sunday 23 August. The winner will be announced shortly after.

Ready, steady, bake!

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.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
