Beekeeping Display at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum

Glasgow & District Beekeepers' Association has produced a display for the Community Area of the Gallery. It will run from the 26th of January until the end of May.

The display is designed to give the general public a taste of some of the activities that beekeepers are involved in - not only keeping bees, but also extracting honey, making various products from hive products and some of the trips and Away Days that have been enjoyed over the years.

Topic: Equipment Comparison

This was popular last year and we will repeat it this year.

This is a chance to compare different types and makes of equipment. Feeders, Clearers, Frames, Hive Parts etc.

There will be discussion on the pros and cons of various items. Particularly useful if you are looking through the catalogues and wondering how to choose what you will buy in the January Sale!

It is also a chance to meet lots of very interesting people and animals - poultry, llamas, alpacacs, pigs, donkeys - you name it you can meet them!
