GBBO winner Nancy Birtwistle hosts a pre-Christmas fair at Ropery Hall
Tickets to see Barton’s Great British Bake Off 2014 winner Nancy Birtwhistle hosting a Christmas Fair in the town’s Ropery Hall have been snapped up like “hot cakes”.
Only a limited number of tickets remain for the evening session while all tickets for the day session have now been sold.
The evening session on Friday, December 8, will see Nancy giving a demonstration, and hold a question and answer session.
The evening, which begins at 7pm, includes a glass of Prosecco and nibbles with the 90 minute demonstration beginning at 7.30pm followed by the question and answer session.
Nancy became a household name in 2014 when she won the fifth series of Bake Off, but many local residents will remember her as the Practice Manager of Central Surgery before her retirement.
Since her Bake Off success she has appeared at numerous food shows and this year is taking part in a “365 Challenge” where she posts a daily tip or recipe on her Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Nancybirtwhistle/
Now nearing the 300th tip or recipe Nancy has included recipes for Sunday dinner, making chutneys, cakes and traybakes as well as tips on how to make sure eggs are fresh, how not to get into a tangle with cling film and how to make sure just washed towels are as fluffy on a still day as a windy day.
Tickets are on sale at www.roperyhall.co.uk, in person from The Ropewalk’s Craft Gallery or by calling 01652 660380.
