BBKA Spring Convention

This 3-day convention of lectures, workshops, seminars and trade show is held annually at Harper Adams University, near Telford in Shropshire.

The 2024 convention is on from 12-14 April and marks the 150th anniversary of the founding of the British Beekeepers Association.


This is the annual show of honey and other products of the hive for beekeepers across Surrey. It continues the tradition of the show and activities at the Surrey County Show in Guildford.

The show is usually held in September or October and the next one is in the Garden Room at Denbies Estate, Dorking on Sunday 1st September.

Winter talks

Our monthly winter talks are usually held on a weekday evening, at the Tilford Institute GU10 2BU where there is ample parking. Talks begin at 7.30 followed by questions and refreshments. Details are published in our members’ newsletter.

Apiary MEETINGS for members

We hold weekly apiary meetings with tea and chat and all are welcome. During the active season, and once a month through winter, we meet on Saturdays mornings at the Rural Life Living Museum in Tilford.
