Bungay Community Bees' biggest event of the year: Bee Hive Day
A family event with something for everyone including an acclaimed film, a bee and pollinator walk, fascinating talks, a workshop, crafts, information stands, an observation hive and stalls selling bee related art, foods and books as well as refreshments provided by Bungay Community Kitchen it will (as is the way with all things bee) inform, inspire, amuse and intrigue you.
Last year around 2000 people came, some stayed for the whole day others to listen to particular speakers, join the walk or just look at the displays and talk to the beekeepers. This year we're delighted that the Natural Beekeeping Trust have agreed to come and talk and founding trustee Heidi Hermann will tell us all about swarming - perhaps the most exhilarating event of a honeybee colony’s annual lifecycle. The Natural Beekeeping Trust takes a holistic view of beekeeping informed and inspired by organic and biodynamic principles, they regularly run workshops in London and from their Sussex base but have never spoken in East Anglia so this is a great opportunity for beekeepers and those interested in bees to hear about their approach.
