Leicestershire and Rutland Beekeepers Association (LRBKA) is a registered Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO), founded in 1882. Currently our membership is around 300 beekeepers mostly located within the two English counties of Leicestershire and Rutland. The Association has three teaching apiaries of its own in different corners of Leicestershire (one of which incorporates a lecture facility) and is one of the best-equipped in the UK offering training and support to old and new beekeepers alike. 

If you are considering starting beekeeping or are an experienced beekeeper, you are most welcome to join the LRBKA. The new beekeeper can expect support and training whilst the more experienced beekeeper can enjoy the company of other beekeepers and keep up to date with all that’s happening in the local bee world.
