World Bee Day Celebration

Places are limited (due to space), and it is strongly recommended to book in advance by registering your interest.


The first World Bee Day, proposed in 2014 by the Slovenian Beekeepers` Association and unanimously adopted by the United Nations, was celebrated on 20th of May last year. The 20th of May was chosen as a date because it is the birthday of Anton Jansa (1734-1773), one of the first teachers of modern beekeeping, who was appointed by the Empress Maria Theresa as a teacher at the beekeeping school in Vienna, Austria.

This year we will be celebrating it on 19th May.

Come and join us between 1 pm and 4 pm for:
- Bee watching (weather permitting) in our Melissa Bee Sanctuary - we have two hives
- Learning about bees and beekeeping
- Honey tasting

At 4 pm we will show the 2012 Swiss documentary film "More than Honey". This film, directed by Markus Imhoof, is certainly one of the best documentaries on bees. Never before seen footage of what is happening inside a beehive allows us to have a look into the fascinating world of bees. The cinematography has justly been called "visually magnificent" and "spectacularly beautiful". But the documentary also explores the devastating effects of industrial beekeeping and the use of pesticides; it raises very important questions regarding the future of bees and beekeeping and highlights the constant threats that bees are facing.

Places are limited (due to space), and it is strongly recommended to book in advance by registering your interest.

The showing of the documentary will be free of charge but for the activities from 1-4 pm we kindly ask for a contribution of £5 (£3 concs.) towards the maintenance of our Bee Sanctuary.
