Mystery Bird

Our secret Mystery Bird tour of 2020 has now finished and we are super pleased with how it was received on the streets of Greater Manchester.   The tour lasted four days from the 10th to 13th December and we visited sites across Greater Manchester including Salford, South Manchester and East Manchester.

Please see this celebration video by Soup Collective of the Mystery Bird tour:

The birds worked to capture the imagination of young and old alike and it was a real pleasure to see how much joy this beautiful piece brought to people whose communities we visited.

If you would like to know more about the project please check out Mystery Bird on the making, the artists and much more.

Please do not forget there’s still time to try our Mystery Bird Instagram filter.  Please visit the Quays Culture Instagram page at @quayscultureuk – more information and instructions can be found here.

Don’t forget to tag us and send your videos to – a collaborative film will be made of those we receive!
