Booths is keeping things classic this Christmas with a host of traditional sweet and savoury bakery NPD but with a modern twist.

The retailer, with stores predominantly in Lancashire and northern England, has sought to champion local bakers, including Studio Bakery and Lathams of Broughton, as part of this.

Here’s what Booths has in-store this Christmas:
