A dssection taking place by our Microscope Group

Come and "Meet the Bees"

Our "Meet the Bees" pagoda.

During the Summer months, the CDBKA pagoda can be seen at many 'Open Days', Summer Festivals, and large Agricultural Shows around Derbyshire.

There is always great interest from the visiting public who can ask questions of our experienced beekeepers who man the events. 

We sell 'Local Honey' from our own association apiary at reasonable prices.

There are interesting features for all ages, with specials such as demonstration of candle rolling which you can have a go at,then purchase and take home your effort. 

Especially for the little ones, we have stickers which state "I've seen the Queen". This is where children have the opportunity to look for the Queen Bee in a special "Observation Hive", in which a working colony of bees can be seen safely behind glass. 

There are lots of A4 printed sheets of bee-related things for the kids to take home to colour in.
