Traditional Manchester culture
You may be familiar with the ‘worker bee’ which is a long-standing symbol for Mancunian culture, you’ll find it engraved into all of the traffic bollards that line the inner city’s pedestrian streets. This is where our cultural journey begins, reflecting upon how the industrial revolution brought people worldwide to live and work in the city. Experience where the squalor of working-class life played out, in the shadows of the factory and warehouse systems that remain standing with new, fresh purposes today. Of course, those working people wanted to be entertained - and you can learn more about how the concept of the ‘weekend’ has roots in Mancunian culture.
