See, part of the Handmade Film Festival

Sunday October 26th

Venue: Harpur Mount Oasis Academy

Doors open: 6.30pm, Start: 7.00pm

The humble bee has been a key Manchester emblem since the 19th century. You can find it on the floor of the town hall; engraved into railings and even nestled into litter bins. The symbol of the bee has come to represent many things to the city of Manchester including industry, activity and cooperation. With this motif in mind this evening’s session of the film festival will explore themes represented by this noisy little insect in a series of Bee movies.

A time lapse inspection of the Bee Hive condensed into 45 seconds.
A Season with the Baytrees Bee Project An edited selection from our local Harpurhey Bee keepers who docu- mented their progress via social media.


A new film that visits the roof top urban bees of Manchester and Salford documenting not only the journey of the busy bee but the evolution of the two cities famous for industry. Both cities, that were a byword for industrial pollution now support thriving colonies of bees and produce fine honey.


Buzzing about … As an added bonus the Manchester Beekeepers who appear in the films will be on hand to answer any questions.
A ‘B’ movie with a sticky ending Stick around (yes you can groan now) for a tasting session of the finest of Manchester’s honey.

Quality Top Bar Hives by Andrew Vidler

Conserving wild bees

Research suggests that bumble bee boxes have a very low success rate in actually attracting bees into them. We find that if you create an environment where first of all you can attract mice inside, such as a pile of stones, a drystone wall, paving slabs with intentionally made cavities underneath, this will increase the success rate.

Most bumble bee species need a dry space about the size a football, with a narrow entrance tunnel approximately 2cm in diameter and 20 cm long. Most species nest underground along the base of a linear feature such as a hedge or wall. Sites need to be sheltered and out of direct sunlight.

There is a spectacular display of wild bee hotels here
