Dig the City Manchester 2012
In July 2012, Manchester Cathedral hosted a fantastic flower display as part of the inaugural Dig the City event, Manchester's first urban garden and flower festival. Over 30,000 flowers were arranged in the Cathedral into the most stunning displays, by very talented flower arrangers from local churches and flower clubs. The theme was ‘Music Through the Ages’ and the Cathedral was a joy to behold.
Outside, Victoria Street became a garden – and a rare breed of dragonfly was sighted there. Bees were installed on the Cathedral roof. The sun shone, the birds sang!
The Dean would like to say a big thank you to the partners, sponsors, volunteers and staff who helped to make the festival a huge success.
We look forward to next year!
