Family Fun: Bee Weekend, in association with the British Bee Keepers Association (BBKA)

Come and enjoy the buzz of Compton Verney and celebrate the pollinators who help to keep our planet green through a series of exciting, family friendly pollinator-themed events and activities – all included in admission!

In association with the British Bee Keepers Association, the following drop-in activities will be taking place over the weekend:

  • A Microscopic Experience – a number of instruments set up to allow participants to peer into the miniature world of both the Honey bee natural history and the study of flowers
  • Candle Rolling Activity – allows the participant to make a pure beeswax candle with their own hands under the supervision and guidance of one of our experts
  • Honey Tasting – enjoy the opportunity to sample differing Honeys from around the country and crops.
  • Children’s Colouring in Competition
  • Observation Hive and Live Bee Demonstrations
  • From Flower to Hive – demonstration of pollination of flowers by bees (carried out by the children) a fully active participation where nectar and pollen is taken from a number of flower and delivered to the honey bee nest, to be converted into honey.
  • Don’t miss Compton Verney’s Bee Village and Bee Hives on the West Lawn.
