Dear Master Pie Maker

On behalf of the Society we invite you to enter the famous 25th Annual Pork Pie contest.

The annual competition is an opportunity for pie makers and enthusiastic pork pie fanciers to get together in the famous Old Bridge Inn to enjoy the fine Yorkshire ale from Timothy Taylor’s Brewery, sample pie and peas, featuring fantastic fresh pies from all over the country.

Twelve finalists will be awarded a Certificate of Commendation and will be featured in the local and regional press. Trophies will be presented to the top THREE places.

To increase your chances of winning, you can have a maximum of 2 entries in the Traditional Pie competition and 2 entries in the Artisan/Speciality section, so why not try different recipes.

Don’t delay, take this opportunity to compete with the best on Saturday 13th May 2017, for the coveted prize of Champion Pork Pie Maker 2017.
