After a successful and critically-acclaimed world premiere at the Everyman Theatre in summer 2022, Great British Bake Off - The Musical is heading to London's West End in 2023 - bringing slapstick comedy, warm-hearted storytelling and a new kind of showstopper to the capital. 

On stage for a limited 12-week run, both theatre and baking fans will be able to catch the musical comedy at the Noël Coward Theatre from Friday 24 February until Saturday 13 May 2023, offering plenty of opportunities to see star bakers and soggy bottoms galore as its eight amateur bakers, two presenters and pair of iconic judges get the whole family bursting with laughter.

Featuring a cast of Olivier-nominated actors alongside ​Phantom of the Opera's John Owen-Jones - with his uncanny similarity to Paul Hollywood - and leading lady Charlotte Wakefield, who is central to the show's sweet love story, audiences can expect impressive vocal performances, hearty handshakes and lyrics packed with humour and innuendo. 

Endorsed by and created in association with the producers of the worldwide television phenomenon, the stage show has been described as ‘a great big slice of musical heaven’ and ‘has been magically re-imagined into a perfectly formed musical-comedy’. 

TV legend and Bake Off judge, Prue Leith, said: 'I am thrilled to bits that The Great British Bake Off Musical is going to the West End. It is an uplifting, funny, heartfelt story, which will have you singing and dancing out of the theatre with a huge smile. A theatrical sweet treat. Just what we need right now.'

Richard McKerrow, creative director and executive producer of the show, added: 'Working on this new Bake Off musical with Mark, the fantastic team of creatives, cast and crew, has been a brilliant experience and thanks to this dedicated team I really hope we have created a musical that celebrates the spirit of the television show and will bring tears and laughter to a wide audience.'

Tickets start from £20 and go on sale from 12pm on Thursday 18 October 2022.
