Wild in Art and Manchester City Council are bringing all of Manchester’s communities together for Bee in the City – a stunning public art trail of over 100 individually designed giant Bee sculptures.

It’s free, it’s fun, it’s fascinating – and it will be in Manchester from 23 July – 23 September 2018.[more inside]
