The finished masterpiece will take pride of place on stage this Saturday at Castlefield Bowl for the Hacienda Classical event more than three weeks ahead of the official launch.  The giant creation pays tribute to the infamous Hacienda days.

Hac-BEE-Enda is set to join other Manchester-themed designs including Hilda Bugden, I Wanna Bee Adored and the Rock ‘n’ Roll bee, signed by Liam Gallagher.

The public art trail of more than 100 bee sculptures runs from 23 July until 23 September 2018.
