Honeyworks for
MCR Flower Festival

The Manchester Flower Festival is back in full bloom! 🌼🌷🌹

The city keeps blooming with Manchester BID’s flagship Summer event… The Manchester Flower Festival! This year it falls on the final May Bank Holiday weekend Friday 26th– Monday 29th May. The festival will fill the streets with floral displays, street art, gardens and markets in and around the central shopping area. There’ll be outdoor dining from alfresco bars to street food, with plenty of cocktails and live music to bring people into the city for the whole weekend.

🎶They work hard for the honey, so hard for the honey!🎶

Printworks is home to four beehives located on our rooftop, each with their own Queen Bee and a total of 100,000 honey bees that all produce Printworks Honey! In association with Hard Rock Cafe, we have been pleased to donate over £3,000 from the sales of their honey to local Manchester charities! This year, Printworks have chosen to celebrate our glorious Rooftop Bees with our Flower Festival entry, along with special honey-themed events…

Honeyworks Bee Garden 🐝🌺🌼

Our Printworks bees are busy making delicious honey up in our rooftop hives and we think they deserve a refreshing cup of nectar after a hard day’s work! Now they can fly down to their favourite local pollination stations that make up the Honeyworks Bee Garden and catch up with all the latest buzz. With the help of Giraffe Flowers, we’ve transformed our 7 outside planters on Withy Grove, filling them with all our honeybees’ favourite flowers & plants, along with honeycomb inspired displays and gold bee ornaments. See if you can spot our little friends relaxing in the Honeyworks Bee Garden throughout The Manchester Flower Festival!
