World Book Day with Nadiya

Visitors in the library at Calke Abbey, Midlands

We're kicking off World Book Day with Great British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain, who will be signing copies of her book in the Riding School at Calke Abbey. Unfortunately this event is now fully booked - we apologise for any disappointment this may cause.

Come and meet Nadiya

Nadiya will be signing copies of her book, 'Bake Me a Story', after school on Thurs 1 March from 3.30pm–4.30pm. Bring along your £1 book token and pick up your copy from the Riding School.

The book signing is a free event, but you'll need to book a place to make sure that Nadiya can sign your book. Bookings are now live, please follow the link below for more details.

Nadiya's Ginger Bug Butterfly Biscuit

Nadiya has developed a tasty new recipe especially for the National Trust! Pop into the restaurant to try Nadiya's Gingerbread Butterfly Biscuit, a tasty treat for children of all ages.

Why not try the recipe for yourself? We'll have recipe cards available in the Riding School at Nadiya's book signing, so you can try it at home and impress your friends with your baking skills.
