Manchester will be transformed into an urban pasture this summer as Cow Parade moves to the City Centre.

From 14 June to 12 September, the city will be full of brightly decorated cow characters that are guaranteed to make you stop and stare as you go about your shopping and leisure time activities.

BBC GMR's cow, known as Doctor Moolittle, will travel about Greater Manchester on the BBC GMR Bus. Visitors are being invited to come and talk to Dr Moolittle, perhaps give someone a (cow) pat on the back.

Presenter Mark Edwardson says, "Everyone who takes part will get a special certificate and have the chance to have their photo taken with the cow for the Manchester web site."

For the first two weeks visitors will also be asked to help decorate a section of the cow and we'll shortly have details on how you can help us decorate a special part of the cow.

Thursday 6 May The cow arrives at the BBC GMR studios. It will now be carefully taken out its bubble wrap and engineers will begin the unique work of installing recording equipment inside the cow.
