Evesham Beekeepers' Association

About us

Established in 1933, Evesham Beekeepers' Association is an enthusiastic group of local beekeepers from Evesham and the surrounding villages who meet throughout the year to encourage and educate beekeepers, protect and promote pollinators, and celebrate locally produced honey.

The Association welcomes new members and encourages interest in beekeeping.  The Association runs a branch apiary at Pershore college, which is used for hands-on instruction. More experienced members are pleased to explain the practice and theory behind beekeeping and offer advice to would-be beekeepers.

With about 150 members currently, the Association is among the most active in the county and arranges a full programme of events including workshops, apiary sessions, and guest talks throughout the year.

For more information about membership see our membership pages.


In the spring and summer beekeepers are prepared to remove swarms and rehome the honeybees. For more infomation on identifying a swarm, and how to report it please see our swarm page.

Asian hornet

Like all conservation groups nationally Evesham Beekeepers' Association is alert to the threat of the Asian hornet. An invasive species which threatens to decimate many kinds of useful pollinators. We need the public to be aware of the Asian hornet, so if you spend time outdoors please review the Asian hornet page so you know what to look for and how to report this pest.
