A Southam group is giving amateur bakers in the area the chance to pick up tips from a Great British Bake Off star.

Members of the Southam Baking Circle have already stirred up quite a storm with the news that they will be hosting Christine Wallace, quarter finalist in series four of the popular BBC television show, to lead a demonstration and question-and-answer session at a forthcoming event - as even though it will not take place until October, there are only a few tickets remaining.

And not only will Christine be showcasing some of the skills that managed to impress the critical palates of Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry - but she will also be judging a vanilla cupcake challenge run by the group on the night.

Sarah Capps of the Southam Baking Circle said: “Christine will be making and demonstrating a new recipe from her brand new cookbook as well as taking Q&As about anything from Bake Off to baking!

“Not only will we be providing Prosecco and nibbles to ticket holders, but we will also be having a raffle and hosting our very own ‘Bake Off’ that people can enter on the night, which Christine will personally judge.

“We have a limited number of 45 tickets due to space, but due to an unprecedented demand, we currently only have a few remaining. This hopefully shows how popular this event is going to be.”

The event will take place at Southam Congregational Church on Thursday October 8 at 6.30pm. To find out more, visit
