About this event

A fun, interactive theory session that explores the wonderful world of the UK's 267 species of bee and then takes a deeper dive into the life of a honey bee.

Event runs 26th January 2022, 6.30pm-8pm via Zoom.

Optional add on of 1 practical session:

Spring 2022 (Date TBC) in Islip, NN14 3LQ

Practical beekeeping is a seasonal activity, the hive can not be opened if the weather conditions are deemed: too cold, wet, windy or any other condition that would put the bees at risk. More specific dates will be confirmed early Spring 2022.

  • The structure of a beehive and how it works in harmony with both the bees and the beekeeper
  • The role of a beekeeper and what happens during a hive inspection
  • Top tips on how you can help protect our bees

Optional add-on of 1x practical sessions at the hives:

After you have completed your theory sessions, you will be invited to get up close and personal with the bees during a hive inspection.

You'll get the opportunity to get into a beekeepers suit and take a closer look at the inner workings of the colony.
