Story

A giant colony of super-sized bee sculptures will be winging its way to Manchester this summer for one of the biggest public art exhibitions the city has ever seen. The Bee in the City world-class sculpture trail is inspired by Manchester’s celebrated worker bee emblem which has been part of the city for over 150 years and is synonymous with Manchester’s pioneering and creatively industrious spirit.

The Bee in the City trail will be on display throughout the city for nine weeks from July to September 2018 for Mancunians and visitors to enjoy whilst taking in the city’s landmarks, cultural gems and areas they may not have explored before. Each super-sized bee sculpture will be decorated with its own unique design, created by regional professional, emerging and amateur artists – making an unforgettably stunning spectacle when the trail goes live. 

The Lord Mayor's charity - We Love MCR is delighted to be the charity partner for this amazing event. We are calling on the people and businesses of Manchester to Bee inspired and give back to the city we all love. 

We Love MCR Charity supports community groups and young people across the city. With your support we can provide much needed funds to help bring communities together, breakdown barriers and help create a better future for the city.
