City in the Bee

The Details

Name: City in the Bee

Designed and decorated by: Hammo.

Sponsor: New Bailey

Design Inspiration

This design echoes the mural that Manchester artist, Hammo painted in Stevenson Square after the Manchester Arena attack last year – to show positivity, solidarity with and love for Manchester. With so many bee motifs popping up across the city, he thought it would be nice to have a city, with a stylised Manchester skyline, within the Bee.

New Bailey is a brand new neighbourhood with a radical skyline of inspired architecture in the city centre. It’s a vibrant, riverside setting, where business, culture and leisure collide. A place to meet, work and live – New Bailey has it all. Perfectly connected with great public transport links and easy walking distance to all the major Manchester hotspots!
