With the NHSN Bee Group

The emergence of bumblebees is one of the most eagerly anticipated signs of spring. Ahead of the new season, join the NHSN bee group for an informal evening workshop designed to provide a gentle introduction to bumblebee identification. Attendees will learn how to recognise bumblebees and identify the different species found in the North East, while also learning more about how to submit their own bumblebee records and contribute to our knowledge of these iconic insects in our region.

Free for NHSN members. Non-members £5. If you would like to join NHSN, please go to

Please note that we have a NO REFUNDS policy for ticket cancellations, except in cases where the event is cancelled by us.
