This week we open for table bookings to the Baking Industry Awards, which take place on Tuesday 8 September at a new venue, the prestigious Park Lane Hilton.

The evening kicks off with a Champagne reception, sponsored by Warburtons, taking place in the glamorous Wellington Room, which overlooks Hyde Park.

As well as a celebrity presenter, still to be announced, the evening will have a 1930s theme from the Art Deco era. As part of the theme, two professional dancers, sponsored by Muntons, will appear from the highly popular BBC1 TV series Strictly Come Dancing, to entertain guests.
