Bee in the City!
Earlier this year, over 100 bees took over the city in one of the most spectacular events to visit Manchester!
The bees were part of a public art spectacle and encouraged visitors to take part on a free, family-fun trail. The bees lead explorers to some of the cities famous landmarks and hidden gems.
Each Bee has been designed by a different artist in celebration of the unique buzz of Manchester, from its industrial heritage to its vibrant music scene.
History of the bees
Manchester first started using the worker bee as a symbol during the Industrial Revolution and became part of the Manchester coat of arms in 1842.
It has since become a cultural phenonmenon and it’s only a matter of time before you see a bee symbol in the city.
