Oxford Bee Fest 2016 - 7th May

On Saturday, 7 May Oxford Friends of the Earth are holding Oxford Bee Fest 2016: In celebration of bees and pollination! at the Natural History Museum.

This festival will include the second Oxford Bee Summit (in the morning) and stalls/activities in the afternoon. The event ties in with the Kurt Jackson exhibition (starting 18 March) at the museum and will integrate with a number of the museum's other planned activities around bees.

The Summit (10 am-1 pm) will include a keynote talk (speaker TBC), several talks showcasing local pollinator-friendly action, followed by a 1 hour workshop to explore how we can establish a network of bee champions in Oxford/Oxfordshire and what this could potentially look like. The Oxford Bee Fest is open to the public, including the Summit (registration required - https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/2nd-oxford-bee-summit-tickets-22333026684).

In the afternoon (2-5pm) there will be stalls (e.g. beekeeping, honey products, information on planting and pesticides) to be held on the front lawn with more activities planned inside the museum. (e.g.storytelling)
