BBKA Spring Convention Day One

Following on from the successful return to a face-to-face Convention in 2022, we are planning an even bigger event, with plenty of lectures,  yet more practical workshops, the not-for-profit area where you’ll find the BBKA trustees and staff, and the customary (Saturday only)  Trade Show with short presentations adjacent in Speakers Corner.  The Convention is held across the campus and the atmosphere is  as sociable as you wish, with places to have coffee and catch up with friends, and the opportunity to meet beekeepers you don’t know too!

Stewarding at the event is a good way of meeting people and getting to know the event. For more information please click here

Ticket sales open at Noon on 30 January.
