Celebrity chef and master baker Paul Hollywood will be turning up the heat at this year’s highly anticipated new-look Autumn Food and Country Fair in Peterborough.

Top tips to improve your bakes, demonstrations, inspirational commentary and a book signing will all feature during Paul’s visit to the Peterborough Arena and East of England Showground this Sunday.

Fans will have the chance to take a seat in the event’s new-look indoor cookery theatre at one of the timed demonstrations, with Paul’s appearance a real coup for organisers of the Fair, who are hoping to attract even more visitors this weekend following an overhaul of the event.

Peterborough Arena event manager Kerry Buttriss said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be welcoming such a high profile celebrity like Paul Hollywood to the event.”

Paul will be taking part in three demonstrations throughout the day at 10.30am, 1pm and 3.30pm.

The Peterborough Arena’s exhibition hall will be transformed into the indoor food and drink area for the Autumn Fair on Sunday and will include foods stalls, sampling, and wine tasting.

Building on the Great Eastern Craft Fair which was launched last year, this element of the show moves into the Atrium – with organisers now appealing for keen cooks, budding knitters and sewers or crafty jewellery makers to show off their work.
