GBKA Talks and Events team were busy in 2023. We delivered 24 talks to adult groups and schools. We hope to do more in 2024.

Our aim is to spread awareness of the wonder and importance of bees and pollinators and give people some ideas on how they can help slow insect decline.

We believe that the more information children and adults have about the role of pollinators, the better decisions we can make about our future. Since the arrival of the non-native Asian Hornet, we also want to spread awareness of this predatory insect that will have a devastating impact on our pollinators.

We have a team of enthusiastic presenters who will bring equipment (projectors, laptop, screens etc. if needed, plus interesting beekeeping kit), and give you an insight into these remarkable creatures. We can present via Zoom for those who prefer to remain at home although in person talks are much more fun. We are very flexible and can deliver talks of 20 minutes up to 50 minutes depending on your timetable and for schools will vary the talk depending on age – from 5 to 18 years.

No charge is made for our talks, but a donation is welcome. We can bring honey for sale if requested.

“I just wanted to send you a message to thank you again for your visit to our school today. The children absolutely loved learning about bees and have been “buzzing” all day! This has really helped us to encourage and inspire the children and we are looking forward to all the follow up work this week.”
St Dunstan’s School

“Thank you so much for coming to Longacre today to talk to the two assemblies. The children and staff were fascinated, and I received so many kind words and compliments about how brilliant and knowledgeable you were, I had to pass this on. You pitched the level perfectly for each of the two groups; I am just sorry we didn’t have more time.”
