Part of Bee in the City
In Summer 2018, we were proud sponsors of Bee in the City, an interactive art trail led by Wild in Art and Manchester City Council. Over 100 giant bee sculptures landed at locations across the and our very own ‘Manchester Movement Bee’ took pride of place in Manchester Victoria Station.
But just how did the Bee come to, well, be? Read on and you’ll find out all about its significance to us and the city of Manchester.
Inspired by Manchester
The Manchester Movement Bee was created by Shelley Jayne, a local artist from Liverpool. She was inspired by Manchester’s industrial past and promise of innovation and development towards a bigger, brighter future – two things that are central to what we stand for too.
A hive to call a home
Manchester Victoria Station was the obvious hive for the Manchester Movement Bee to call home. The station is now our main hub in the city and our trains provide direct connections to and from other major cities including Liverpool, Newcastle and Leeds.
We even wrapped one of our train carriages in an extra special Bee in the City livery.
