One of the region’s flagship music and entertainment venues has a lip-smacking opportunity for a creative entrepreneur.

Middlesbrough’s historic Town Hall is looking for an operator to take over the café in the newly refurbished building.

It’s a chance to serve up tasty treats at the very heart of the cultural scene in the Tees Valley.

Town Hall bosses are hoping to hear from newcomers as well as established operators.

Middlesbrough Town Hall Manager Lorna Fulton said: “The Town Hall is a fantastic venue, and the recent refurbishment has given it a new lease of life.

“We have a whole new programme under way, and we need a café operator who can deliver something to complement and enhance such a vibrant offer.

“We’re open to pitches and proposals from across the spectrum, from independent to artisan, newcomers to established names, fine dining to the delights of street food.

“The key criterion is that the new operator delivers a fantastic food offer in keeping with one of the region’s best destinations.”

  • The closing date for tenders Wednesday, December 19.
