Where to Find Manchester’s
‘Bee in the City’ Sculptures
Manchester’s ‘Bee in the City’ sculptures have finally landed and they are un-bee-lievable.
Over 100 bee sculptures have swarmed the streets of Manchester and created a buzz. Everyone is on the lookout to find each and every unique design.
The art trail, organised by global public art producer Wild in Art in partnership with Manchester City Council, is hiding the bees in Manchester’s cultural gems across the city and beyond for just nine weeks.
Some of the iconic Mancunian designs include:
ROCK ‘N’ ROLL Bee designed in partnership with Liam Gallagher.
