Cupcake specialist Songbird Bakery is one of eight food venues selected to sit on Middlesborough’s Bedford Street.

It was announced yesterday that eight eateries have been selected to open premises on Bedford Street, with Songbird as the one bakery among them.

Bedford Street is a former town centre terrace undergoing redevelopment. Modelled on London’s Borough Food Market, it will feature an array of bars and restaurants, from a bakery to a burrito bar.

Songbird Bakery, owned by Shelley Tyreman and Claire Philpott, is already based in the Middlesbrough and Stockton area. It makes bespoke cupcakes and giant cupcakes fresh to order.
