There is a Buzz around Manchester!


This summer Manchester will have a real Buzz in the city as over eighty super-sized bee sculptures will fly in and create a swarm of excitement.

Bee in the City – Wild in Art, supported by Manchester City Council, are bringing this free, family-fun event to Manchester in the summer of 2018 – inviting everybody to bee happy in Manchester. The city will see over 80 super-sized 3-D bee sculptures (and smaller 2-D bee sculptures created by schools and young people), turning Manchester into a delectably creative adventure for all.

In anticipation of the event The ‘Au’ bee had a little tour of the city and it was amazing.

Each bee is sponsored by a local business who work with artists, create an amazing array of designs, showcasing a range of styles, techniques and themes that reflect the city, and will be displayed through streets, parks and public spaces across Manchester.

Throughout the summer, families, communities, residents and visitors to Manchester will follow the trail, using the app to ‘collect’ each bee on the trail, which could include anything and everything from the The Bee Gees to Bee-am Gallagher.
