Celebrity chef and master baker Paul Hollywood will be turning up the heat at this year’s Autumn Food and Country Fair, giving top tips to improve your bakes, demonstrations, inspirational commentary and book signing during his visit.

“We wanted to introduce some new elements to the Autumn Fair this year, hence the new name, to widen its appeal to the public and families whilst maintaining many of the features which people love about the event, and come back year after year to enjoy – including the very popular Great Eastern Craft Fair.”

There is free parking and the event runs from 8am until 4pm. The East of England Showground is located just off the A1 at Alwalton near Peterborough. Visit the website for details.
