You’ve swooned over his sourdough, revered his rough puff and prized his pies. And now you can see TV star and master baker Paul Hollywood in the flesh, as he brings his Get Your Bake On roadshow to York.

The man who has tapped a hundred soggy bottoms on The Great British Bake Off will knead, crimp and cook his way into York hearts at the Barbican Centre on May 8.

Paul’s judging double act with Mary Berry has brought him millions of fans. And now he’s breaking out of the small screen to bring his first ever live show to Britain.

Paul Hollywood Live – Get Your Bake On! sees the blue-eyed one take to the stage for an evening of baking, comedy and fun.

“When I was approached to do a tour, I jumped at the chance, I can’t wait to share my passion for baking with a live audience,” he said.

Get Your Bake On will see Paul demonstrate recipes, reveal some of the secrets of being a TV chef and take the audience on a journey through his life in baking.

The show will culminate with four lucky randomly chosen audience members coming on stage to bake with Paul.

Audience members will get a real insight into Paul’s life and career which has seen him become a household name.

From the story of how his father persuaded him to ditch his path as a trained sculptor and join the family baking business; tales of his time as head baker at some of the world’s most exclusive hotels, which lead to him becoming one of the country’s finest artisan bakers; to anecdotes from his time filming The Great British Bake Off.

Paul will demonstrate up to four of his favourite recipes during the show and four lucky audience members, chosen at random, will be invited to take part in one baking challenge with the chance to be dubbed star baker.

The York audience will also been given the opportunity to put their own questions to Paul in an open Q&A.
