Bee Observatory Visits

May - June 2020

In partnership with the Peterborough & District Beekeepers Association and Central England Co-operative, come and learn about the significance of the honey bee, mini-beasts  and the important role they play in our environment.

Get the buzz for the world of bees at the East of England Showground.

Find out how to identify a honey bee, the different types, where they live, and how they make honey – as well as other well-known products they are responsible for too.

You can also get an insight into how the bee keepers work, try on their outfits, and see how they get the honey from the hives from the safety of our very own bee observatory.

The Bee Visit was very informative for our children. All the information was perfectly pitched, as were the activities, and the children faced fears. We will do a class write-up when we get back to school.” – St Bartholomews Primary
