WEST END BAKE OFF 2018 RAISED A RECORD BREAKING £9,500 IN AID OF ACTING FOR OTHERS
Theatrical charity Acting for Others today announces that £9,500 was raised at the fourth annual West End Bake Off last weekend; breaking all previous records for monies raised at this event, which has become a calendar marked day for shows in the West End. The same day His Royal Highness Prince Harry married Meghan Markle, top West End shows brought cake creations to be judged by Christopher Biggins, Wendi Peters and Ruthie Henshall.
Taking the crown this year was Young Frankenstein beating 17 other shows including The Lion King, Mamma Mia! and last year’s winners 42nd Street. This year saw the companies go all out to celebrate the Royal Wedding, there was a Royal carriage adorning the Les Misérables stand, The Comedy About a Bank Robbery had the blue prints to Buckingham Palace with a plan to steal the crown jewels and a wedding dress cake from Everybody’s Talking About Jamie.
Stars of the show also popped in to show their support including Cuba Gooding Jr and an impromptu auction took place with Cleve September and Michael Jibson selling limited edition Hamilton t-shirts signed by the company.
West End Bake Off is supported by Official London Theatre and Mackintosh Foundation.
