What better way to enjoy a couple of hours together, than urban beekeeping and craft beer tasting?
After a sell out first season in 2017 and rave reviews from Time Out and The Nudge, The Hiver experience is back for Spring/Summer 2018.
The two hour session starts with a short introduction to Bees and Beekeeping, the equipment and tools commonly used by Beekeepers as well as a first glimpse inside the hive. We'll then get suited up for a Hive inspection and help Hiver's Beekeeper, Barnaby Shaw, in handling the frames and checking the health of the Hive. After the fun of getting up close with the 'Ladies', we'll relax over a tutored beer and food matching session before leaving you to explore the rest of Bee Urban and answer any questions.
LOCATION: Bee Urban London, Kennington Park, St. Agnes Place, London, SE11 4BE. There is limited parking available in the area but as the site is only a short walk from Kennington Tube station and we'll be tasting beers as part of the experience, we suggest that you make the most of the fantastic transport links that the area has to offer.
DURATION: 2 hours
NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS: 2
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
The Hiver experience is available on most Saturdays and Sundays from April until the middle of September and the sessions can be booked by following the information on your e-voucher via our booking portal or over the telephone. Choose a date and session that suits you or if you'd like to book something bespoke, we'd be happy to organise a custom tour based on the availability of our Beekeeper.
Sessions are in groups of up to twelve people and in the case of really wet weather, we'll be inspecting the exhibition hive, build brood frames and harvest honey instead of the Hive Inspection.
Bee Urban is suitable for disabled access and Hiver will provide all safety equipment. Please wear socks and covered shoes on the day and a few layers that you can take off as you get into your suits!
