Welcome to the North of England Beekeepers' Convention Website
Unfortunately, our two keynote speakers who were coming from California have been forced to cancel because of an accident. We are very glad that Dr Tim Lawrence is now recovering, but he and his partner Dr Susan Cobey haves passed on their regret at not being able to attend our Convention as arranged.
Additionally Helen Jackson has sadly had to withdraw from our event this year due to a family bereavement.
However, we are delighted to have attracted two excellent speakers instead. We are very grateful to Prof. Stephen Martin from the University of Salford, and Dr Geri Wright, from Newcastle University for stepping into the breach at very short notice. They will be joined, as previously advertised, by Phiil McAnespie, President of the Scottish Beekeepers Association and Jane Moseley, General Secretary of the BBKA.
The convention will be held on Saturday 29th March 2014 at the Beacon, Westgate Road, Newcastle upon Tyne NE4 9PQ and we really hope that you will join us for informative talks, stock up at numerous trade stands and take the opportunity to catch up with beekeeping friends and acquaintances over drinks and snacks provided at the end of the day.
