Bee in the City is a new art trail that swarms its way through the city showing the artistic and indomitable spirit of our fine city (read our full preview here). However, as much as the bee signifies diligent workers, it’s important to also bee well (sorry). Well Pharmacy are one of the main sponsors and the project’s official health and wellbeing partner and they are are encouraging trail-goers to get active this summer with a variety of health initiatives. These include free, family-friendly, fun activities dotted around Manchester taking place every Friday while the bees are in town. Events are listed in full below; many take place along and around the canalways of Castlefield as well as in Albert’s Shed and Dukes 92. Lunchtime sessions include disco yoga, zumba, pilates, hula hooping and qigong to help you keep calm this summer.
