Calendar Girls Bristol Hippodrome Cake Sale

Calendar Girls Bristol Hippodrome:

You can have your cake and eat it at this special Calendar Girls The Musical charity bake sale taking place outside the Bristol Hippodrome next week.

Cast members Lesley Joseph, Sarah Jane Buckley, Sue Devaney, Julia Hills, Judy Holt and Lisa Maxwell will be joined by Great British Bake Off 2018 semi-finalist Briony May, to sell a range of cakes and treats in aid of blood cancer charity Bloodwise.

Briony will be providing the cakes for the event which will take place outside The Bristol Hippodrome on St Augustine’s Parade from 12-3pm on Thursday 11 July.

The event will feature DJs and guests from BBC Radio Bristol, who will be broadcasting live from the theatre.

Calendar Girls The Musical, was inspired by a true story following a group of ladies who created a nude Women’s Institute calendar to raise money for their local hospital in memory of one of their husbands.

So far the ladies have raised almost £5m for Bloodwise. All the money from the Bristol Hippodrome bake sale will go to Bloodwise, with the charity continuing to receive funds through the stage show.

Calendar Girls The Musical will be at The Bristol Hippodrome from 9-20 July  2019.
