Waveney Beekeepers are opening their doors and their hives to the public this Sunday, June 18.
The event aims to increase people's awareness of the importance of the honey bee, and also teach visitors about the bumble bee and how it is different. There will also be information about swarming, why bees do it and what we can do to help.
The open day runs from noon and there will be displays, the opportunity to dress in a bee suit and visit bees in the training apiary.
Refreshments and honey will be on sale and admission is free.
Waveney Beekeepers headquarters can be found at Grange Farm in Hall Road, Barsham.
