Talks and Apiary Visits (usually held on the first Monday of each month)

We hold a variety of events throughout the year including monthly talks on a range of beekeeping subjects, most of which are held during the autumn and winter months and take place at the Blue Cap in Sandiway near Northwich. During the spring and summer months, when the bees become more active, we organise visits to members apiaries where we can observe their hive inspections and discuss topical beekeeping issues. These events are open to all CBKA members.

Our 2024 programme of events is shown below but is subject to change depending on the availability of hosts and,
in the case of apiary visits, weather conditions and status of the bees.

Please keep revisiting this page for up-to-date information on our events.
