Bee Craft holds monthly informal webinars. Each month we host a Bee Craft Live Event at 8.00pm UK time to discuss a different aspect of beekeeping – hopefully relevant to the time of year – to which you can submit your questions (see box above) and we will be able to answer them live on air.

We mentioned the word “live” just then because that’s exactly the point, they will be streamed live so you can watch them there and then or we will also record them for you to watch at a later date.

Any comments during the live event do either submit a question above or Tweet us using #BeecraftLive and we will try to bring your comments into the Bee Craft Live Event.
