Welcome to the Manchester Bees, dedicated to celebrating one of Manchester’s most enduring icons. Here you can find a wealth of information about the bee, from its history to its presence around the city centre, from appearing on buildings to the streets. There’s also details about upcoming and past events and also about Manchester’s urban beehives.
A new display about the Manchester Bee can now be found in Manchester’s Central Library.
Created by the British Ironwork Centre, the Manchester Anti-Violence Bee Monument is built from thousands of firearms, knives, and weapons as an anti-violence monument.
The Manchester Bee is a new illustrated children’s book written by Peter A. Johnson and illustrated by Nastia Peace.
A ubiquitous sight around the city centre, bees are featured on a variety of street furniture, a highly visible sign of its importance as a symbol of Manchester.
