After the great response of last years’ first World Bee Day at Capital Gardens, we are happy to announce we are celebrating it this year on Sunday 19 May across all four of our garden centres. From bee-friendly activities to guided tours of neighbouring beehives, join us for an exciting day full of fun and interesting activities. A free to attend event with the aim to inform about bees and sustainability as well as helping local beekeepers.


Each centre is partnering with a local beekeeping group to support the community’s bee population, with donations going to the beekeepers on the day. Children activities, bee friendly products, expert talks and much more!


Alexandra Palace Garden Centre is in partnership with the North London Beekeepers. Try beekeeping equipment on for size as you learn all about the intricacies of keeping and caring for bumblebees with an on-site observation hive.


Kids activities will include DIY bee stone painting, with stones, paint and brushes provided. Alexandra Palace is also hosting a ‘Big Bee Hive’ colouring activity, where kids can get creative and paint a bee-autiful section of the giant hive which will remain on display after the event for visitors to see.
