With two months to go until the big event, it’s time to reveal the theme of this year’s Baking Industry Awards at the Grosvenor House Hotel...James Bond!

There’s a distinctly Bond-like slant to this year’s entertainments. Race Aston Martins around a Scalextric Racing track, sponsored by Sonneveld, for the chance to win a real one for the weekend. There will be a balloon for every guest, sponsored by Kluman & Balter, with five surprise packages of hi-tech gadgetry. And the bread rolls will be provided by The Cotswold Food Partnership, which is offering a prize of Champagne, canapés and a balloon ride over The Cotswolds.

As well as a Warburtons-sponsored drinks reception, guests can take part in the ’funny money’ casino, sponsored by Cereform, which is offering a trip to Monaco for the winners. Barry Callebaut will provide the chocolates and chocolate fountain.

The awards will be hosted by Joanna Lumley, who played a supporting role in 1969’s On Her Majesty’s Secret Service! Book now for a top-class evening.
