The nations favourite TV show has become a brand-new Great British Musical.
Five years in development, created in association with the producers of the phenomenally successful TV series and following nightly standing ovations of a sold-out summer run in Cheltenham this brand new British Musical transfers to the West End.
The nation's iconic and beloved baking show has been remastered for the stage. Watch as eight amateur bakers, incredibly witty presenters and two legacy judges whip up a showstopping storm, glazed with a delightful original score.
Get ready to enter the tent as the competitors don their aprons and bring along their best recipes and stories in this warm musical comedy. Who will rise as Star Baker, and whose bakes will suffer a dreaded soggy bottom? With loveable characters, laughter that is measured with the heart and a generous helping of mouthwatering music - don’t just watch The Great British Bake off on the screen, experience its rise to life on stage in this family-favourite production.
Expect a scrumptious signature slice of humour, heart and abundant joy! With sixteen wonderful new memorable songs written by acclaimed duo Jake Brunger and Pippa Cleary, this laugh-out-loud dose of escapism will leave you savouring every bite.
From your neighbours to your colleagues to your grandparents to your children, everyone is welcome in the Bake Off tent.
