FAQs

I want to book for a group, how do I do this? 

If you would like to book for a group, you can simply buy your tickets above, and increase the number of people attending to the desired amount. The minimum booking number is two people, as we have a team of two at each bake station. If your party is an odd number, they may be paired up with someone new, which is where all great friendships and romances begin.

Can I hire the entire marque?

No problem. If you would like the entire marquee, just send us an email at contactus@thebiglondonbake.com and we can reserve a session for you. We are also attached to a rather fantastic pub, so your food and drink needs can be well looked after.

How long are you running for?

We are running from May to December 2017


Can I book just for myself?

Yes of course. We do have a minimum booking requirement of two people per station, but if you would like an entire bake station to yourself, you can! Just select two tickets, and process a booking for two people.

Are ingredients provided? 

Yes, just bring yourself!

I went to the Big London Bake twice, once with my mum and once with my girlfriend. I scored 5th (boo) and 1st (yay) on each occasion and had a great time. The set-up of the tent is wonderful and really makes you feel like you are part of The Great British Bake-Off, with clear instructions to complete your chosen cake and all cooking equipment provided. The team were great and supportive and appear to have really responded well to the feedback of other reviewers, incorporating changes into the event from my first time. Would definitely recommend to all. Tip - Bring a large bag to carry your cake box in otherwise it'll end up in a pile of mush like ours did. Nav visited The Castle Tooting on 22 Jul 2017

It was a fun experience but it wasn't without its flaws and for the amount you pay for the ticket, I was expecting more. First of all, when we started, we didn't have the full ingredients and had to ask for what we were missing, also it seemed as if our oven was running a lot hotter then others which didn't help, when we mentioned it, they were quick to blame other factors. It had been raining the day we went, and the rain was dripping onto half of our bench which made things inconvenient, they should have been better prepared for the rain. Only the winners ended up with something to take home, although with the amount we paid, I felt as if everyone should have received something just for participating but it was a fun time none the less! visited The Castle Tooting on 22 Jul 2017

We had so much fun! If you're at all a fan of Bake Off, I can't recommend this highly enough. It felt like stepping into a little baking fantasy, it was such a laugh. But I actually learned some new skills, too, as the bakers-in-charge/judges were so super helpful and lovely. Definitely check it out! Carolyn visited The Castle Tooting on 20 Jul 2017

My sister and I had a fab time during this activity, it really felt like we were on the real GBBO. The event was very well run and all the staff were very helpful and enthusiastic, especially Rochelle! I highly recommend this event. Kiri visited The Castle Tooting on 16 Jul 2017

This was a birthday treat for my fiancé! Such a unique experience and we had a great time especially since we won lol! The set up and location was fab and the staff were so lovely. I would recommend it to anyone :) only gripe was that I was expecting for it to be choux pastry month, I was looking forward to the experience but ended up making a sponge. All round great evening even despite the extremely warm weather and having to bake in the heat. Fauzia visited The Castle Tooting on 08 Jul 2017

Really cool experience and love the way the tent looked. Slightly disappointed that some of the staff were rude, especially the head baker (not sure if she was acting? Or just had an attitude problem) and also some of the flavourings etc were out of stock but we waited for 10mins to be told that so lost baking time. Otherwise really fun experience

a really cool event spoiled by a very miserable team. The head baker worked very hard and the set up is just like Bake off which is great. However the rest of the 'helpers' were at best unhelpful & worst rude. At the end of the session half of our goods were thrown in the bin by a staff member - meaning we were left with 5 eclairs after 90 mins work- not only disappointing, but £70 for 5 eclairs and some rude comments just isn't worth it. visited The Castle Tooting on 13 Jul 2017

Absolutely loved it! Great set up and really nice pastry chefs who help out and give you advice. Maybe at the end just do a top 3 rather than point out who came last because it put a bit of a downer on things especially as everyone was there to have fun. But overall it was a really great event visited The Castle Tooting on 07 Jul 2017

Loved it!!! Would definitely recommend this to anyone who fancies something a bit different. A friend has already booked it for September! I just wish that ALL the baking 'pros' would be consistent in their instructions and advice! And don't bake the genoise for 35 minutes!! Test at 20 and take out about 25!

Great set up as in the tent looks very much the real deal, however couldn't get over the head judge Rochelle's manner. She sucked all the fun out of the event treating us like children telling us exactly how she thought we should be baking, We were all there to have fun and it felt like she'd lost sight of this and thought it was great British menu instead! Also the fact that only three cakes get physically tasted is a bit mean, there were people that had come quite far for the event and then didn't get their cake tasted by the judges. Overall we liked the event, but tell Rochelle to lighten up. Alison visited The Castle Tooting on 02 Jul 2017

*Such* a fun way to spend an afternoon! Whether you're a keen baker or just have the odd instagram-worthy masterpiece, you'll definitely have fun and pick up a few skills along the way. The hosts in our session were professional pastry chefs and super friendly. The tent set up is really cute and from the minute you walk in, the pressure is on - there's a star-baker spot up for grabs people! Perfect for mates, couples or family - is it too soon to come back? nataliemckenna3 visited The Castle Tooting on 25 Jun 2017

Incredibly unorganised. The head baker was disinterested and unable to keep the time properly. Things weren't explained well at all. Shame as the other 2 members of staff were polite. Has the potential to be good! visited The Castle Tooting on 24 Jun 2017

Better than the real thing! I attended their first event on a blazing Saturday morning and it was idyllic. While the Castle pub might not have the majesty of a stately home it more than makes up for it in atmosphere and a ready supply of booze. It genuinely has a bit of a Secret Garden feel as you go through the wooden doors at the back of the busy beer garden and enter into a baking wonderland. All the helpers are enthusiastic and give you the right amount of help, so you at least create something edible, even if it’s not quite as good as the expert’s effort. While I only knew my baking partner when I arrived it was a great social event to get involved with and everyone poured into the pub afterwards. I can see this being a huge success as the format works equally well for a date or any size bunch of mates.
