World Bee Day

Event Details

Celebrate the wonderful things buzzy bees do for us for World Bee Day at the British Museum. Little ones can learn about our favourite pollinators with a craft and sensory experience. Why celebrate bees? Well, there is a direct link between world food production and bees.

The greatest contribution of bees and other pollinators is the pollination of nearly three quarters of the plants that produce 90% of the world’s food. A third of the world’s food production depends on bees, i.e. every third spoonful of food depends on pollination.

When: 20th May

Where: British Museum

Age: Under 5s

Join us on 20 May to celebrate World Bee Day!

The Museum bees are very busy today visiting flowers, collecting pollen and tending the honeycomb. Can you help them?

Paint your wings ready to buzz along our bee path, find out about the wonderful world of bees and see how many of our bee-autiful friends you can find. There will be textures to feel, colours to spot and smells to enjoy.

This event is free to drop into at any time between 10.30–12.00.
