The Great Brixton Bake Off *Needs a Host*

This sounds great; about 30 competitors, some Vegan *Including local favourites The Vegan Tart, Ms Cupcake & new delight, Trina's Delicacies , plus some bakers who'll be making their debut in Brixton* ; events for kids & a tea dance!

''....There will be six categories: Cakes, cupcakes, biscuits & bites, savouries, vegan and bread. There will also be a grand prize awarded to the yummy treat judged Best in Show!

The tough decision of whose baking is best will fall on our panel of judges made up of local business owners, such as Mellissa Morgan, from Ms Cupcake; Stacey Raymond, Manageress of Morleys of Brixton department store; the Mayor of Lambeth Mark Bennett; the Managing Director of Patisserie Valerie, Victor Scalzo; and the television personality, celebrity chef and businessman, Levi Roots. The judges are also donating the winners’ prizes and are sponsoring the event....''

Another funky day out in Brixton!
For all you sweet toothed Vegans out there, cake galore down South of the river! Plus a big pub frequented by Walkabout regulars :) The Dog Star is handy for hanging out & having a good chat on a hopefully cheery Spring afternoon!

So, it starts at 10am & finishes at 5pm; same place as the regular Brixton Walkabout *Brixton Station Road* ; people can of course meet at the tube, or just get down the market & explore!

Should be lovely! Even with April showers!
See you there!
All the best,
Jess *not hosting, relaxing this time--it's my birthday!*

    Time table for the day tomorrow - drop by when it suits you!

    The event starts at 10am and there are to be over 32 different bakers present at the market selling their wares. There have been 16 entries into the vegan category for judging so there should be loads of yummy things on offer. The other categories are:

    1. CAKES
    4. BREAD
    6. VEGAN (although vegan food items may be entered into any category - so ask the baker to highlight which are their vegan items!)

    From 10 am to 12 pm: Kids workshop
    From 11 am to 12 pm: "Swingland" dance group (tea dance)
    From 12 pm to 2 pm: "The No Frills Band" live Folk music

    Winners will be announced around 2:30 pm in a presentation with the judges

    Last year most of the bakers sold out much closer to 2pm than 5pm, so I would recommend coming along early in the day.

    See you there!

    I'm getting confused. This event starts at 10am but at some point I'm sure I read that we meet up at Brixton Tube at 12.30pm — or am I going mad/demented?

      The usual monthly Brixton vegan meet-up (happening next week) has a time of meeting at 12:30 - this special one tomorrow doesn't have a set 'meeting time' as far as I'm aware. I'll post a bit more about the timings in a few minutes.
