Looney Tunes characters take over Manchester City Centre!

Were you a Looney Tunes fan? The kooky hi-jinks gang were a staple part of many childhoods and represented the golden age of American animation, all produced by the well-known Warner Bros. 

All of the classic characters have appeared on the streets of Manchester as part of a special art trail, with the likes of Bugs Bunny, the Tasmanian Devil and Tweetie Pie bringing the town to life!

The fun-filled walking tour is part of the promotion for the Space Jam: A New Legacy film, which is hitting cinemas on July 16.

CityCo, Manchester BID and Warner Bros UK are all behind the colourful paintings which have been created by street artist Captain Kris.

The trail spans across 12 locations and each one contains a QR code which can be scanned using a smartphone to access the full virtual map.

The route spans from the Northern Quarter to Spinningfields, Market Street to the Gay Village, Deansgate to Oxford Road, Printworks to Primark… so you’re bound to spot at least one if you’re off for a day out!


Don’t miss out – the trail will only be on show until the end of July, so enjoy the unique addition to the city whilst you can.
