The Czech Beekepers Association will introduce 25 delicious samples of quality honey from the Czech valleys, fields and woods and traditional 'Old Bohemian' honey wine as well. Beekeeping in the Czech Republic has a long tradition. The number of beekeepers (55,000) and bee colonies (600,000) per one square meter is one of the highest, perhaps even the highest, in Europe.

At 7pm there will be a welcoming address by the Slovenian Ambassador, HE Tadej Rupel, the Chief Executive of Conway Hall, Dr. Jim Walsh and a representative from Bee Midtown.

The aim of World Bee Day – which has been designated by the United Nations on the initiative of Slovenia – is to raise awareness of the importance of bees and other pollinators for their contribution to sustainable development, food security and biodiversity.

Bees pollinate as many as 170,000 species of plant and every third spoonful of food is dependent on pollination. Safeguarding bees safeguards biodiversity: the vast majority of pollinators are wild, including over 20,000 species of bees.

Admission is free, but tickets must be booked in advance on the Conway Hall website.
