Lead by Hillsborough Castle’s beekeeper Gwen Earnshaw, children will learn about the wonderful world of honeybees, their role as pollinators and how they make honey and waxcomb. Beekeeping equipment will be on display and you can taste honey made here by Hillsborough Castle’s very own honeybees. Finally, Gwen will demonstrate the honey extraction process and how to mould shapes with the wax, which the children can take home.
This is a free drop-in workshop included in the admission price (£9.90 adult, £4.90 child, £7.90 concession) to Hillsborough Castle’s 100 acres of world-famous gardens.
Spaces are limited and on a first come first serve basis.
