Event description

Description

It may come as a surprise to you as you wander past Harvey Nichols and the Corn Exchange into the Medieval Quarter to find that things are a little lively at roof level. Canon Apiarist Adrian Rhodes has been looking after colonies of bees on the Cathedral roof since 2012. It may also be a revelation to learn that he also taught Manchester legend Bez, the art of beekeeping on the Printworks’ roof.

Our friendly bee population numbers 360,000 and they repay the kind attention of Adrian and the dedicated team of Volition volunteers by producing the Cathedral’s very own brand of Heavenly Honey.

Come along and find out more about the Manchester Bee, its connections with this church and the art of urban beekeeping.
