Honeybee Experience Day

An introduction into Honeybees, why we keep them, and what it’s like inside the hive!

Our Honeybee Experience Day is aimed at those who are unfamiliar with the workings of a beehive and have never handled bees before. Our Experience Day includes a practical hands on experience, you will spend time in the Apiary, open an active colony of bees, and see how a colony works. There will be drinks, snacks and an opportunity to meet other likeminded enthusiasts and experienced beekeepers.

Our Experience Day makes a great gift experience too, so if you know someone who is fascinated with bees, why not make their day and buy them a Gift Voucher so they can come and join us.

Our next Honeybee Experience Day 2024 has now been confirmed:

Date: Sunday 21st July 2024
