Young Frankenstein Wins West End Bake Off!
On Saturday Young Frankenstein were announced as the winners of the fourth annual right royal West End Bake Off in aid of Acting for Others. As his Royal Highness Prince Harry prepared to marry Meghan Markle the winners, chosen by returning judge Christopher Biggins alongside Wendi Peters and Ruthie Henshall, were revealed at the event held at St Pauls Actors Church in Covent Garden.
Young Frankenstein was crowned the winner of this year’s West End Bake Off after competing against 18 other West End shows, including The Play That Goes Wrong, The Mousetrap, Les Misérables, Phantom Of The Opera, Book of Mormon, Th Comedy About a Bank Robbery, Mamma Mia!, Thriller live!, The Great Gatsby, Iris Theatre, and industry paper The Stage. They follow in the footsteps of 42nd Street which won the third West End Bake Off in 2017 and which raised over £5000 for the charity.
Commenting on the winner, West End Bake Off judge Christopher Biggins said: “It’s so fantastic to be here again judging for the fourth year of this amazing competition which helps so many people in the West End. Every year gets more and more exciting and the cakes get more and more phenomenal, it really is such an exciting day!”
See below some of my personal shots of the event.
I was proud to support West End Bake Off, by running the social media for both Twitter and Instagram feeds. You will have seen that the figure raised so far for Acting For Others is a humongous £9.5k and there is still money trickling in.
Running the social media for a charity event is always a challenge, especially to get it trending. But on a day when you are vying for attention against a Royal Wedding and the FA Cup – Well!!!! However I’m proud to say that we got WEBO trending at number two in London – second only to the other royal event that day.
