Warwick to be buzzing with activity for World Bee Day

Leamington Editorial 5th May, 2024   0

THERE is set to be a hive of activity in Warwick for World Bee Day.

Bee Friendly Warwick is inviting everyone to ‘bee-themed’ activities at Hill Close Gardens and Guys Cliffe Walled Garden over the weekend of Saturday May 18 and Sunday May 19.

They will also be launching their #Plant4Pollinators campaign which is asking all residents to plant at least one pollinator-friendly plant in 2024.

At Hill Close Gardens on both days there will be lots of free children’s activities including making a seed bomb or bee home, painting some rocks, going on a treasure trail or joining in an ‘Is it a Bee?’ Safari.




The whole site will be decorated with knitted bee-themed creations from the Woolly Wonders and there will be a local traders market with crafts, gifts and bee-themed products on sale.

Meanwhile, at Guys Cliffe Walled Gardens on Saturday and Sunday there will be a treasure trail, face painting and storytime with the bees. Children are welcome to come along in fancy dress.


Warwickshire Wildlife Trust and the Warwickshire Butterfly Conservation Group will have stalls and a collection of photographs by local insect photographer and citizen scientist Sabina George will be on display.

Chair of Bee Friendly Warwick Sara Lever said: “We are hoping lots of people will join us at our Big Bee Weekend, which we are excited to be running across two sites this year, both at Hill Close Gardens and Guys Gliffe Walled Garden. We have different activities at each venue, so we hope people will drop into both sites over the weekend.

“Everyone is welcome to come along anytime from 11am until 4pm to enjoy our free children’s activities, browse our information stalls, buy some honey, gifts, or plants from our stalls, and enjoy the refreshments available throughout.’
