Large Gingerbread House Competition Entry (Kit Included)


Entry to the Large Gingerbread House Category of the Safe in Sussex Gingerbread House Competition 2022.

Each year, the Year 10s at St Oscar Romero design a gingerbread house which becomes the main house kit sold in aid of Safe in Sussex and used for their annual Gingerbread House Competition.

This year’s phenomenal design will be revealed in August but you can see a selection of the previous year’s houses in the gallery.

Your kit is included in your entry

You will receive one large house charity gingerbread kit with the necessary pieces of gingerbread and a few sweets. However, you can go as mad or inventive as you like adding in decorations or expanding on the design.

Collection Date:


Show off your decorating skills making our large house and turning it into an edible masterpiece. Whilst the base shape is the same for everyone, the design can be absolutely anything you want it to be! The wackier or more colourful the better.

Entry includes your gingerbread house kit which will be sent to you through the post or you can pick them up from our Gingerbread HQ in Brighton on the Safe in Sussex offices in Worthing. You must use the kit for the competition entry.

Your kit contains all the gingerbread house pieces to make one house, a silver board, full instructions on how to assemble and a selection of sweets. Don’t limit yourself to just the sweets which come with the kit, think outside the box and try breakfast cereals, chocolates, sprinkles and just about anything else edible you can think of!

We make kits at cost so all money raised from the sale of them goes directly to Safe in Sussex and the wonderful work they do.

Your kit will be sent to you through the post in good time for you to decorate ahead of the competition. Alternatively you’re welcome to collect from our Gingerbread HQ in Brighton or Safe in Sussex’s offices in Worthing. Please select your preferred option at the check out. If choosing collection please specify in the notes where you’d like to collect from.
