What is BEE Manchester?

BEE Manchester is a community led project set up by Stanley Grove Academy as part of the 'Big Draw 2017'. As part of this project over 10 thousand children and members of the local communities of Manchester took part. The project uses individual 'frames' that the people made to create unique stop motion animations celebrating the iconic Manchester Bee and what it means to the people of Manchester. Manley Park Primary School was one of the 18 schools, 8 libraries and 2 museums that took part in this project.

Where can the films be seen?

The BEE Manchester films can be seen in or around all of the venues on the Bee Trail map which Manley Park's pupils have been sent home with. To view the films, just go to any of the locations on your map between Tuesday 24th - Tuesday 31st October, with a smart phone or tablet. Download the free Aurasma app and hold your devices over the trigger and the films will start to play. The trigger image for the Manley Park Primary School film is our school logo. 

You can see the films inside…Manchester Cathedral, Manchester Town Hall, Central Library,
Manchester City Art Gallery, Whitworth Art Gallery or Manchester Museum.

You can also see them outside…The Corn Exchange, St Ann’s Square, The Palace Hotel, 100 KingStreet, The Print works or the Northern Quarter.
