River of Flowers: Manchester

About our river

The majestic Manchester Partnership, made up of the Manchester Gallery, the Whitworth Art Gallery (currently closed to be transformed into a 21st cetury gallery in a park) and the Manchester Musuem (both part of Manchester University) and the Manchester School of Art at Metropolitan University, has started the River of Flowers Manchester flowing along the Oxford Road Corridor. As the river grows, it will be joined by other organisations and community groups.

There are a number of floral and food initiatives in Manchester, which directly or indirectly support pollinators, including:
