Call-out to amateur bakers on 29 September

This year's Durham at War conference includes a Poppy-themed Bake Off competition

Poppy Bake Off

As part of the Durham at War conference on Saturday 29 September 2018, in County Hall, Durham DH1 5UL, we invite you to get creatively commemorative in the kitchen.

Durham at War Conference 2018

Bring along any sort of bake that you care to make (cake, biscuit, pastry...)

It could be made in the shape of a poppy, it could be decorated with poppies and/or flavoured with poppy seeds.  Please do let your imagination run riot!  

Entries will be judged and eaten by conference attendees on the day.

See the links below to seed (sorry!) your inspiration:

Our programme of interesting speakers throughout the day should provide the icing on the cake.

You can book your conference ticket online or phone 03000 267 626.

Please note that there is a small charge to cover refreshments and a buffet lunch for members of the public attending this event.
