How does it feel to charm the nation, make the mighty Mary Berry cry and turn the humble act of baking into a life-affirming triumph and rallying cry to anyone who ever doubted themselves? One woman knows: Nadiya Hussain, the winner of 2015’s ‘Great British Bake Off’ and instant national treasure.

Over the course of an evening’s conversation, Nadiya will talk about life before, during and after Bake Off. We’ll hear how audiences have reacted to her as a young Muslim mum, plus how she got into baking and the flavours that inspire her, her time on the show and the amazing journey she’s been on ever since, which includes new book titles ‘Nadiya’s Kitchen’ and children’s book ‘Bake me a Story’ to be released this year.
