Yoko Ono invites the people of Manchester to gather together in Cathedral Gardens and send a message of peace to the world. Join thousands of diverse voices and a people’s orchestra of bells from home and abroad as the city rings and sings out for peace – and welcomes the world to Manchester.

Yoko Ono has been among the world’s most renowned and respected artists for more than 50 years. This new commission is the first major work she has created for the city of Manchester.

People across Greater Manchester are currently designing and creating their own unique handcrafted ceramic bells at a series of special workshops. Join them on the day to hear them – or bring a bell of your own and join in!

Emily Lim – Event Director
Shizuka Hariu & Shin Hagiwara – Event Designers

Commissioned and produced by Manchester International Festival. Supported by Paul Hamlyn Foundation as part of My Festival.
