Our Courses


An Experience with Honey bees – public open day 8th May 2021 CANCELLED  As part of our charitable objective we aim to raise awareness about honey bees, generate interest and provide education.
Beekeeping for Beginners: Theory / Practical A multi-stage course covering both theory and practice sessions is available on a yearly basis. Gain a sound understanding of beekeeping and experience putting it into practice.
BBKA – Basic Exam This is the official basic beekeeping qualification of the British Beekeepers Association.
Continuous Learning Throughout the year we aim to provide educational speakers continuous learning opportunities for members who have already got bees.

We offer an exciting and engaging training programme for potential, new and experienced beekeepers that runs throughout the year. We provide tasters for those considering taking up this fascinating hobby, training for beginners giving you the knowledge and confidence to take on your own bees. Due to COVID restrictions we are planning training as usual but will do theory sessions in the Spring on zoom. We hope to deliver practical sessions during the Summer but may alter methods of delivery depending on the latest advice at the time.

Lancaster Beekeepers welcomes new beekeepers of all ages and have Club suits to fit most sizes. Trainees under the age of 18 will need parental consent and be accompanied by a responsible adult.
