Full description

Discover Manchester’s Street Art by solving challenges and unlocking stories on your phone. Learn about the Cities of Hope street art project, and see Queen Victoria’s statute, the Ian Curtis mural, and much more.

The game starts at Queen Victoria’s Statue, where you’ll take the role of a worker bee tasked with recruiting artists for your queen’s 500-day jubilee celebration. As you solve challenges, the story unfolds and directions on your phone will guide you to the next location.

It will take you between 1-1.5 hours but you should explore at your own pace: simply pause the game and resume when you want from the location where you paused it.

Play on your own, in a large group, or in several smaller groups that compete against each other before meeting at the final stop of the game, Frank Sidebottom.

    Great fun

    Considering the price it is a great opportunity to discover a unique Manchester district for its style.

    It was fun and I loved to take the small roads I wouldn’t have taken myself. One stop is not accurate anymore. The graffiti of the girl from Stranger Things called Eleven is overpainted with the guy from squid game.
