Artist's Description

Now sadly dismantled, B of the Bang was Britain’s tallest sculpture and was commissioned to mark the success of the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester.

Located next to the City of Manchester Stadium, in Beswick, Manchester, the statue was designed by Thomas Heatherwick and unveiled by sprinter Linford Christie in 2005. It takes its name from a quotation of Christie in which he said that he started his races not merely at the ‘bang’ of the starting pistol, but at ‘The B of the Bang’
