Take a trip into the past and find your way through the maze of memories to recover the stories of the zookeeper. Meet the animals and people that lived and worked there. Pass the old bearpit and tiger house and play with the monkeys and parrots. With their help, you can solve the puzzles that lead you to the tales of Belle Vue. But be careful – some people have other plans for those memories, and they are very keen to get their hands on them. Don't let them catch you!
Monkey Business was a playful interactive story for families about the history of Belle Vue Zoo, designed for the Manchester Histories Festival 2014.
Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
