Bee in the City 



Lowry Outlet are delighted to be supporting Bee in the City, a spectacular public art event taking place from July – September throughout Manchester.  The Bee in the City trail consists of over 100 bees located around Manchester; follow the map to see how many of the ‘one of a kind’ hand painted bees you can find around Manchester.

The event’s 3-D bee sculpture has been inspired by Manchester’s iconic worker bee which has been part of the city’s heraldry for over 150 years and is synonymous with the city’s pioneering and industrious spirit. Bee in the City will bring together the business and creative sectors with local schools and communities to celebrate Manchester’s heritage and showcase its diverse cultural offer and artistic talent.

At the end of the trail, the bees will be auctioned off to raise significant funds for The Lord Mayor of Manchester’s We Love MCR Charity to improve the lives of Manchester residents and help them reach their full potential.  For your chance to own one of the fantastic bees, click here.

Lowry Outlet will be home to one of the 100 supersized bees located around Manchester, the fabulously sparkling ‘Beedazzle’. Designed by Maria Shrigley, the Beedazzle bee has been designed to sparkle with Manchester! The design is inspired by the bright lights and vibrancy of Manchester’s streets, as well as the sparkle in the eye of every Mancunian!
