Local ‘Street Food’ vendor Bangers and Bacon has very kindly offered to donate £1 from every bacon brownie they sell in October.

That’s right, another local vendor in Manchester is supporting Caketober. A month long celebration of cake where we invite community groups and Greater Manchester businesses to get involved by baking, dressing up and raising some dough for community projects across Greater Manchester.


Bangers and Bacon was formed in summer of 2014 – after a year spent trading at some of the top street food events in the North, they opened a bricks and mortar premises at The Kitchens in Spinningfields in June this year, much to the delight of their fans. The collective passion and energy from James and Heather Taylor and Richard Brown ensure that every dish created in this porky playground is filled with flavour and fun and it’s guaranteed to delight the taste buds.

Working with the North’s premier street food collectives, you can find them trading at festivals, catering for private events and putting the piggy in your middle at their acclaimed ‘Chefs Table’ supper clubs. Collaborating with The Ginger Tart, they have created the signature Bangers and Bacon ‘Bacon Brownie’…delicious chocolate chunks and candied bites of treacle-cured bacon make this the ultimate salty, chocolate treat.

If you happen to be in Spinningfields around the Kitchens, make sure you head over and try one (maybe two, no one is judging) of these unusual creations. We can attest to their brilliance. It will also help us reach our goal of £10,000 this Caketober.

A massive thanks to Bangers and Bacon for their generous donation.
