Enjoy a performance of The Great British Bake Off the Musical: if you find that you are getting tired of sampling sweet things over the Easter period, get your sweet tooth fix by paying a visit to this new musical which pays homage to the beloved television series (which apparently features many of the innuendos that you would expect!).
