ARTISAN baker Tom Herbert will be giving advice to budding cake makers during the Flour Festival taking place at The Brunel shopping centre on Saturday and Sunday.

Tom, pictured left, from Channel 4 show The Fabulous Baker Brothers, will be appearing with Ms Cupcake, otherwise known as vegan baker Melissa Morgan, and gardener David Domoney at a marquee based at Wharf Green.

There will be cookery demonstrations, book signings and workshops, while homeware displays will be put up in the centre’s plaza and arcade.

Entertainment will be provided by The Courgettes and the Dinner Ladies during the festivities.

Jane Stewart, the Brunel’s marketing manager, said: “We wanted to create something a little bit different for this May bank holiday weekend. We’re very lucky to have secured such great names as The Fabulous Baker Brothers and David Domoney to impart their wisdom and ideas to Swindon’s shoppers.”

The Flour Festival will take place from 11am to 4pm on both days.
