24 hours to go ‘til the first ever National Bakery Awards!

The county winners are all packing their sandwiches and ironing their undergarments in preparation for the first ever National Bakery Awards, which take place at BAFTA House in London’s Piccadilly, tomorrow!

The county winners are all attending to collect their certificates – having been voted, judged and crowned the best bakeries in their respective counties. But that’s just the tip of the battenburg …all 67 county winners will find out who the 13 regional winners are tomorrow, and if that wasn’t exciting enough, one of those regional winners will then be crowned National Bakery of The Year.

We are extremely excited about this fantastic inaugural event, and will of course keep you all posted on the winners as and when they are crowned.
