Event:
You'd bee crazy to miss this
Did you know that as well as the almighty Queen Bee, there are also worker and drone bees? And that all worker bees are female! I am woman hear me roar!

The Visible Hive has been designed in collaboration with CIBER to give unique insight in to the buzz-y lives of a hive of hard working bees. Using specialised valve systems and a long tunnel to the outside world, watch the bees fly out on their quest for pollinating plants and return to make it into liquid gold, otherwise known as honey.

Discover how honey is made, how bees communicate and reproduce, and what research is being done into their fascinating world.

This is an exhibit adults and children can appreciate.

Honey - that is a topic that can be discussed with scones and tea? However, the bee is a very part of society...and what a great opportunity to see them in action!

And with the decline in the world's bee population, it's an extremely timely exhibition. Save the bees!!
