Live from the Hive

The 2017 bee-keeping season has been an exceptional one for the bees on our rooftop! 

This time last year, the decision was made not to extract so that they would have enough stores to keep them over the winter months. This year, the four hives have gone from strength to strength and we are looking forward to a bumper yield.

The #LiveFromTheHive project is a collaboration between The Printworks and Hard Rock Cafe Manchester and all the money raised from the sale of the £10 jars of limited edition honey goes to The Booth Centre for the Homeless and Forever Manchester, the community foundation for Greater Manchester.

The first yield of honey back in 2014 sold out in a week, with jars signed by Mancsy (who designed the labels) fetching as much as £75! The 2016 yield was just as popular and to date, we have raised over £2,000 for the two charities.


Place your orders now to avoid disappointment (once it’s gone, it’s gone) and to get your hands on a jar of this year’s liquid gold! To place your order please call the Hard Rock Cafe Manchester on 0161 831 6700 and the team will let you know when you will be able to collect your jar.

When you try it, please let us know what you think of it, by tagging us in your posts @The_Printworks and @HardRockCafeMCR #LiveFromTheHive

And remember to rinse and return the jars once you have enjoyed all the honey!
