BAKING guru Dame Prue Leith, who is a judge on the world’s biggest baking TV show The Great British Bake Off. is heading to Basingstoke.

Nothing is off the menu in this frank, revealing, and very funny performance by Prue, who is embarking on her first-ever live tour which comes to The Anvil on Thursday, March 23.

In her first-ever live show, Prue takes you through the ups and downs of being a successful restaurateur, novelist, businesswoman, and Great British Bake Off judge, feeding the rich and famous, cooking for royalty, and even poisoning her clients.

In the second half, she will be joined on stage by Clive Tulloh, who will put questions to Prue from the audience, that they've always wanted to ask, making the show a night to remember.

Prue said: “I’ve never done a stage show before and at 82 I’m probably nuts to try it, but it’s huge fun, makes the audience laugh and lets me rant away about the restaurant trade, publishers, TV and writing, and sing the praises of food, love and life.”

Prue quickly became a firm favourite with Bake Off audiences when she joined the show alongside Paul Hollywood in 2017. 

Before she joined the much-loved Bake Off team, Prue head enjoyed great success in her career as a restaurateur, chef, writer and journalist.
