2024 Taster Session Sat 18/5, 13/7, 10/8 - £35   iCal entry for this event

Beekeeping taster session with Leeds Beekeepers Association


Want to find out more about keeping bees? If so, then a taster session might be for you,

Spend a couple of hours with Leeds Beekeepers at our Temple Newsam Apiary to have fun and find out about honey bees and what it's like to be a beekeeper.

The taster session combines a talk about keeping honey bees in the UK followed by a group colony inspection with an experienced beekeeper.

You will have plenty of opportunity to ask questions during the talk and during the inspection.

This is the perfect experience if you are thinking about taking up beekeeping but are just not quite sure or if you just want a hands-on experience to remember.

There is car parking at Temple Newsam, (there may be a charge - consultation currently in place within Leeds City Council). We are quite close to the 'Go Ape' adventure park which is very popular.  'Go Ape' is a good landmark, our apiary is signposted from there. For directions click here

If you find you want to continue and learn more about beekeeping, then you may wish to sign up to our new beekeeper course starting in September - see our website.
