A two-day course will be running over two Saturdays, the 20th and 27th March 2021. Each day will last from 10:00am to 4:00pm at St Ann’s Millennium Centre, Rainhill.

The cost of the course is £95 and this includes membership to the Liverpool and Merseyside Beekeepers’ Association (LBKA) up to November 2021. This gives membership of the British Beekeepers Association (BBKA), product and public liability insurance, and you will also receive a monthly magazine.

In the event that the course needs to be rearranged due to Coronavirus restrictions, the membership part of the fee (£25) cannot be refunded as it will have already been paid to the BBKA.

We are limited in the number of participants and places. We can only accept applications from those over the age of 16 but there is a reduced fee of £85, for applicants 16-18 years of age.
