Our famous Bee Tent gives members of the public the chance to be guided by an experienced keeper around a real hive of honeybees. Visitors put on protective suits and enter our specially-constructed tent where they will get to see the queen, worker bees, honey and all the other wonders of the hive. Guests enter the tent in small groups. Full protective equipment is provided and all guests are suited and supervised at all times by experienced beekeepers.


If you would like the Bee Tent at your show or event, then please contact our Treasurer by email in the first instance: treasurer@lrbka.org

Observation Hive Speakers

An observation hive is a special kind of beehive with large sides made of glass. Visitors can watch the bees at work in complete safety and with no need for protective clothing. Beekeepers are on hand to point out items of particular interest and answer any questions. Children particularly enjoy trying to find the queen!


If you would like the observation hive at your show or event, then please contact our Treasurer by email in the first instance: treasurer@lrbka.org

Our Association has a group of interesting, inspiring speakers who are happy to come and give talks to schools, clubs and societies. Presentations can be tailored to a particular aspect of beekeeping if required or can simply be a lively, informative introduction to this most fascinating of crafts.


If you would like a speaker at your club or society event, then please contact our Secretary by email in the first instance: secretary@lrbka.org
