The Bakers’ & Butchers’ Fair returns this autumn and, with it, your chance to prove you make Britain’s Best Loaf.

We will be holding the competition for the second year running when the fair is held at the Newark County Showground, Nottinghamshire, on 12 October.

The event also features a host of demonstrations from expert bakers – including Birds of Derby and Chris Foxall, of the Village Bakery.

The show also gives bakers the chance to face off against their butcher rivals with the return of the National Pie Competition.

Martyn Leek, editor of British Baker, said: “The Bakers’ & Butchers’ Fairs are must-attend events for anyone in the craft bakery market. As usual, we’ll have a whole host of different exhibitors, stands, demonstrations and competitions on offer.

“It’s a great place to look at new kit, new ideas or just to have a catch-up with some of the best-known people in bakery.”
