The British Society of Baking is to host its exhibition dinner on the Monday night of the Bakery@Foodex exhibition, taking place from 25-27 March 2012 at Birmingham’s NEC.

The dinner will take place at the Marriott Forest of Arden Hotel and Country Club, near Birmingham’s NEC on 26 March. It is open to anyone visiting or exhibiting at the show, not just Society members.

The dinner, including wine, tea and coffee is £70 to BSB members and £75 to non-members. Guests booking a table of 10 can subtract £75 from the total price. Visit for details, or contact BSB secretary Sharon Byrne at or tel 01869 247098.
