Who are the Bakery Bear’s?

We are a subscription based video channel offering a range of video content to our ‘patrons’. These include our history/travel show, ‘The New Adventures of the Bakery Bears’, our cooking show ‘The Bakery Bears Pudding Club’, our quiz show ‘Knit or Forfeit’ and our movie review show ‘The Bakery Bears Picture Show’.

We also produce a range of content exclusively for ‘patrons’. From our magazine, Knitability, to exclusive adventures in our ‘Quests’ series, a monthly live video show, over 200 tutorial videos, behind the scenes shorts and so much more. Find out more about this content here https://bakerybears.com/watch/


Why are we on Patreon?


We had become totally disillusioned with the media we all consume. So much of what we watch is littered with adverts and worse still, product placement. When we watch a program, we don’t want to be disturbed with ad’s and most important of all we want to be able to trust what is being presented to us.

So in May 2015, following Dan's battle with cancer, we launched our Patreon page with one goal, to create a subscription based service, offering a range of video programming for our viewers with no ad’s and no product placement. Since that date we have never increased the subscription charges to our Patrons, but we have continued to grow our content and our offerings every week with our regular shows, and every year with the introduction of new benefits.


Why do we need YOU?


We are totally supported by our patrons, we accept no advertising or product placement in any of our show’s, our patrons are our soul source of income. If YOU enjoy what we do and you want to keep us on air, we would be honoured and so thankful if you become a patron of ‘The Bakery Bears’.
