Taster Sessions


Not sure if beekeeping is for you or you just want to find out a little more about beekeeping and actually try inspecting a colony of bees? If so, our taster sessions are what you need!

Taster Sessions consist of 2 hours of hands-on beekeeping and a theory chat.  On arrival, you will be given a talk from an experienced beekeeper about keeping bees, then you will join a group inspection of a bee hive, where you will be able to gain an understanding of the inner working of a hive.

After a Taster Session you might even be interested in attending one of our extensive, informative and practical beekeeping courses. 


Our Taster Sessions also make an ideal gift for someone in your life who has expressed an interest in honeybees!


Leeds Beekeepers provide bee suits/ veils and gloves for your experience.
