Artwork takes its place in trail

Bee by the cathedral

As the school year comes to a close, a major art installation for Manchester begins with a creative addition from The Radclyffe School displayed at an important Manchester venue.

Students worked with artist Barry Spence to design and decorate one of over 100 honey bees. Our design, titled ‘the bee of hope, community and respect’, has landed outside Manchester Cathedral, located on Victoria Street in Manchester city centre.

The sculpture is part of a city-wide trail taking in many of Manchester’s landmarks and hidden gems. The trail is the creation of arts group Wild at Heart, and has involved businesses, community groups as well as schools to get creative – the project is called Bee in the City.

If you would like to discover our bee in the city, the trail is open from Monday 23rd July and will continue through the summer holiday. Don’t miss out, they will be in their places until Sunday 23rd September.
