Welcome to LBKA

Welcome to the web site of the Liverpool and Merseyside Beekeepers Association (LBKA).

We are amateur beekeepers in the Merseyside area and are affiliated to the BBKA (British Beekeeping Association).

Swarm of bees or bees in roof spaces, walls etc.
See the information and links on the Swarm or bees in building page.

We hold monthly meetings with talks on various aspects of beekeeping from visiting speakers and practical beekeeping demonstrations. These meetings are an opportunity to meet fellow beekeepers, share knowledge and ask for advice. New beekeepers are always welcome and beginners’ courses are usually run in the New Year, for those thinking of taking up beekeeping.

For more information or to become a member either visit us at one of our monthly events or contact us with your enquiry. Email to contact@liverpoolbeekeepers.co.uk

Beekeeping in the theatre
16, 17 and 18th November, Blackburn House

Liverpool Network Theatre Group are delighted to present ‘Humble Boy’, the award-winning play by Charlotte Jones. Beekeeping is central to the story and one of our members has kindly loaned them a hive as a prop.

Take a stammering astrophysicist, add his waspish mother, her boorish beau and his free-spirited daughter, sprinkle with a nervous family friend and garnish with a wise gardener. Place all in the warmth of an idyllic British summer and watch the desperately cultivated veneer of civility disintegrate deliciously.
