Bakery professionals hoping to attend this year’s Baking Industry Awards are advised to make their bookings without delay.

The prestigious awards evening, to be held at the Park Lane Hilton London on Wednesday 7 September, is almost at full capacity, so those hoping to obtain a seat are advised to act soon.

 The event, which will be hosted by England rugby star Matt Dawson, will see awards presented in 10 different categories, designed to celebrate and reward excellence across the UK baking sector.  These include the top accolade of Baker of the Year, as well as the Outstanding Contribution  Award, the winner of which is chosen through a nomination process.

The evening includes a three-course dinner and entertainment and provides an excellent opportunity for the UK’s baking industry to network with peers.

Don’t miss your chance to be there. To book, contact Elizabeth Ellis on 01293 846593 or email

Last week British Baker announced the finalists in nine of the 10 categories. The winner of the Outstanding Award will be revealed on the night itself.
