West End Bake Off rises again for 2016

First Published 15 April 2016, Last Updated 15 April 2016

Apollo Victoria Sponges, Red Velvet cakes and How The Other Half Loaves; they could all be on display and up for sale when theatrical cake contest West End Bake Off returns for 2016.

The tasty fundraiser proved such a success last year that it’s back this summer, returning to St Anne’s Church Courtyard from 11:00 to 13:00 on Saturday 16 July.

As with last year’s inaugural event, West End Bake Off will feature mouth-watering muffins, beautiful buns and many other delectable concoctions baked by teams from some of the West End’s favourite productions.

All the tasty treats will be up for sale, with all proceeds going to Acting For Others, the umbrella organisation that represents 15 theatrical charities offering emotional and financial support to members of the entertainment industry that have fallen on hard times through illness, injury or circumstance.

Last year, in which the quality of cake was judged by Barbara Windsor and Christopher Biggins, saw £4,000 raised. Legendarily long-running thriller The Mousetrap took first prize, beating offerings from 13 other London shows in the process.

More information about West End Bake Off 2016 can be found at the event’s website.

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 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.
