Manchester City Council

We’re working with Manchester City Council to bring all of Manchester’s communities together to create Bee in the City – a stunning public art trail of 80+ individually designed giant bee sculptures.

Crafted by regional professional and emerging artists, it weaves its way across the city during the summer of 2018. An inspirational learning project will also give children and young people the chance to take part.

“The bee symbolises the industrious, creative and energetic spirit of Manchester and its people. Bee in the City will build on Manchester’s reputation for innovation and the role that culture plays at the heart of city life. This accessible event will encourage Mancunians and visitors alike to explore the Bee trail next summer. It’s sure to be a memorable and enjoyable spectacle and the Council is pleased to be backing this special event.”

Sir Richard Leese CBE, Leader of Manchester City Council
