Sunday saw us learning to dance, eating lunch and being entertained with a concert by the League of Harmony in the evening – all at the original Theatre Royal in Old Orchard Street, Bath and for the lucky few on the final Saturday the contestants from Masterchef 2011 prepared our lunch on the lawn in front of the Royal Crescent.
