River Street Events, organisers of BBC Good Food Bakes & Cakes Show, has announced that the 2015 show will move to Olympia London to co-locate with the BBC Good Food Show London.

River Street Events, organisers of BBC Good Food Bakes & Cakes Show, has announced that the 2015 show will move to Olympia London to co-locate with the BBC Good Food Show London.

The Bakes & Cakes Show, which enjoyed a successful launch last year at The Business Design Centre in Islington, is packed with baking techniques and cake-crafting demonstrations, as well as free master classes for beginners to advanced level bakers, and exhibitors showcasing hundreds of baking products.

The move to Olympia will enable Bakes & Cakes visitors to have a better show experience, taking advantage of a larger Supertheatre to see Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry baking live, plus a brand new Bakes & Cakes Stage on the show floor. All the popular features from last year’s show, including the Cake Parade and Step by Step Masterclasses, will also be retained.

Laura Biggs, Managing Director at River Street Events, commented: “We know that West London is a perfect place for a baking audience. Similarly, we run very successful shows side by side at the NEC and can see lots of advantages for exhibitors, sponsors and visitors alike by co-locating our two successful London shows side by side at Olympia. Visitors to both shows will be allowed free access between the shows and every advance standard ticket holder will be offered a free seat in the 1,200 seat Supertheatre that will host both baking and cooking content, from a renowned crowd of chefs and cooks including Mary Berry, Paul Hollywood, James Martin and Tom Kerridge.”

The BBC Good Food Show has run in London for over 10 years and is London’s most established and successful food and drink show. River Street Events believe that adding the BBC Good Food Bakes and Cakes Show will make the show even more compelling and successful for all participants. Each show will retain its own strong identity and individual marketing campaigns and the organisers expect a combined attendance for the two events to reach 35,000 over the 3 days, from 13th to 15th November 2015.
