You might have seen her on the Great British Bake Off, or watched her whip up a storm in a cookery demo, but how much do you know about Karen Wright? In an exclusive evening talk, she shares the story of her life, from growing up as a local lass to finding fame on Bake Off, and the many extraordinary twists of fate in between!

This event has moved and will now take place in Treacy Hall, next to Wakefield Cathedral.
