Croydon Beekeepers’ Association can offer access to a programme of events, both at local and Surrey level.


Many of our events are for beekeepers however some will also be of interest to non-beekeepers, particularly the summer fairs. We have regular Apiary meetings during the summer and talks during the winter, plus training courses and Study Groups designed to suit various levels of ability for complete beginners to the more experienced beekeepers. Scroll down for a full list of events or go to the ‘Visit our apiary’ page for more information on how to visit us.

We also organise the Croydon Honey Show, a local family-friendly show with free entry for visitors.

The Croydon Honey Show is held in September each year, and is a great chance for Local Beekeepers to show off their skills and their produce – honey, beeswax candles, and honey cakes, biscuits and sweets.

There is always lots to for non-beekeepers to see too!:

  • an observation hive with live bees
  • locally-produced honey for sale
  • locally-produced cosmetics made using honey and beeswax
  • a chance to talk to local beekeepers
  • candle making

Participation in local events such as village fairs and shows

We enjoy supporting local events such as fairs and shows and our stands are always a point of interest!

We can provide the following:

  • an observation hive with live bees
  • experienced beekeepers are on hand to answer questions
  • information about bees and beekeeping
  • subject to availability we can bring our own honey for sale, and also cosmetics made from beeswax. Alternatively, visit the little honey bee company for locally-sourced cosmetics.


We are also able to provide speakers to local community groups to talk about bees and beekeeping. If you would like to book a speaker or enquire about our events please email
