Get your nature fix with our live beekeeping lesson

Did you know that Wellington Place is home to a colony of honey bees? We’re supporting the sustainability of honey bees in the city centre with our on-site beehive.

Each year we give our customers the fantastic opportunity to get up close and personal to this threatened species with a beekeeping lesson. Unfortunately due to the pandemic and social distancing, it’s not safe to host the visits to the beehives this year.

So instead, we’re bringing the bees to you, by setting up a virtual beekeeping lesson with beekeeper Bill. You’ll get to see the bees behind the safety of your screen and learn about all aspects of the lives of these fascinating insects.

Update June 2020:

The live beekeeping took place on 17th June 2pm, but you can watch the recording of the session below.
