Beginners Beekeeping Course   iCal entry for this event

This beginners theory course is for anyone who is aspiring to become a beekeeper and is a prerequisite for the practical courses at our association apiary. The course is over 6 consecutive Wednesday evenings and each session will be approximately 2 hours duration.  For those who choose a course option with the British Beekeeping Association Guide to Beekeeping book, you'll find this a very comprehensive book packed with a massive amount of information!


The course will prepare you for the thrill of becoming a beekeeper and will form the backbone of your knowledge about this incredible insect - the Honeybee. This is just the start - you will continue to learn and master the craft for many years to come!
If you choose the option to also attend our practical apiary sessions, then your course fees will also include Social Membership that will entitle you to attend our winter association meetings prior to the commencement of the Beginners Course.  Before starting the practical apiary sessions, you will need to upgrade your membership to Full Member status for a small fee.  Our apiary sessions are quite informal social events at which you will be mentored by our experienced beekeepers and make new friends to share your experiences with.
Through our association, you will be able to purchase your first colony of honeybees when they become available.  You will also be allowed to leave them at our apiary until you are ready to relocate them to a permanent position of your choosing.
Refreshments will be provided at each of the sessions along with the opportunity to chat with our beekeepers who will be delighted to answer any of your questions.
As our course becomes full, if you are unable to purchase a place please let us know by completing this form here.
