Up to 30,000 pupils from schools, colleges and youth groups across Manchester are taking part in our inspiring Learning Programme. Inclusive and imaginatively linked to the curriculum, it gives children and young people the chance to explore everything Manchester through creative eyes.
131 medium-sized Bee sculptures have been decorated as part of the Learning Programme, and will be proudly displayed on the trail this summer. The designs explore a range of themes, from equality and diversity to local history and bee conservation.
The school Bees are now on display in 19 venues across the city centre and further afield, including Manchester Cathedral, the National Football Museum, the Royal Exchange Theatre, Longsight Library, and the Stables Café in Heaton Park. At the end of the trail each school or group will be able to keep their Bee and put it on display as a lasting legacy for their young people.
