Get Involved

Lancaster Beekeepers is a friendly and growing group of hobbyist beekeepers who meet regularly throughout the year to share experiences and develop their beekeeping skills.

The Club offers all newcomers a comprehensive development package, including practical training at our own apiary, to ensure that they become competent beekeepers.

Throughout the colder months at the beginning and end of each year we hold a diverse range of talks and lectures on a wide range of topics suitable for both novice and experienced beekeepers. This culminates at the end of the season with the AGM and social event. During the summer months a number of practical workshops and social meetings are held.

The benefits of membership do not end here. Experienced Club members are always available to provide guidance and practical assistance when necessary.

Lancaster Beekeepers is a branch of the Lancashire & North West Beekeepers Association (LNWBKA) and by joining, you will be entitled to attend the county events, for example the Honey Show and events hosted by other branches.

Joining as one of the BBKA recognised membership categories entitles you to membership of the British Beekeepers Association at a heavily discounted rate and, depending on the category chosen, these can include public liability insurance, bee diseases insurance, the monthly magazine.

If you choose to join as a Lancaster Only Member, you will not get the wider benefits of being part of LNWBKA or BBKA, so you may choose to join as a Partner or Country Member instead.

Our membership year runs from 1st November to 31st October each year.

Lancaster Beekeepers is a branch of Lancashire and North West Beekeepers Association of the British Beekeepers’ Association which has the registered charity number 506167.
