The Hiver Experience - Urban Beekeeping & Craft Beer Tasting (Spring/Summer 2017)
Join us at Bee Urban London and get hands on for the full Hiver Experience.
After a sell-out first season and rave reviews from the amazing folk at Time Out and The Nudge, the Hiver Experience sessions are back for the Spring/Summer 2017 season.
The session starts with a short introduction to Bees and Beekeeping in the city, the equipment and tools commonly used by Beekeepers as well as a first glimpse inside the hive. We'll then get suited and booted ready for a Hive inspection and the chance to help Hiver's Beekeeper, Barnaby Shaw in handling the frames and checking the health of the Hive. After the fun of getting up close and personal with the 'Ladies', we'll relax over a tutored beer and food matching session before leaving you to explore the rest of Bee Urban and answer any questions. There's a small shop on site and Bee Urban is about a ten minute walk from Kennington Tube station.
Groups are of no more than twelve people per session and in the case of really wet weather, we'll focus on inspecting the exhibition hive, working with Beekeeping tools to build frames and harvesting honey instead of inspecting the hive.
The experience runs from mid April till the end of September, is not available to under 18's and is not suitable for those with a Bee Allergy
