Cooks challenged to bake Bridport

There'll be no Bridport Food Festival this year, but that doesn't mean food's off the menu for this year's events calendar.

Bridport Museum and Bridport Food Festival want people to bake a cake to show off the town's rich history.

They're launching the 'Bake Bridport' competition where participants will battle to make the best cake representing Bridport they can.

It could be inspired by a building or landmark from around the town, or even your favourite Bridport Museum relic.

Bridport Museum say it's also a great chance to support local businesses by buying local. 


Museum Director Emily Hicks said: 

"History and cake- what a winning combination!

"We can't wait to see what you all create- perhaps a lemon drizzle Town Hall, a chocolate ropewalk or a coffee cake ammonite….. there are no limits to this challenge- and when you've made your cake you might like to share with your family or neighbours!"

'How to enter'

  • Take a photograph or short video of your creation and post it on the Museum's Facebook, Twitter or Instagram feels using the #BakeBridport to take part.
  • Entries will be accepted up until the 30th June.
  • A panel of independent judges will each pick their favourite entry based on the creativity and originality of the entries.
  • Winners will be announced in early July.
