La Fromagerie co-hosts with Urban Bees. Regent's Park Honey is produced entirely in the royal park. The bees forage from the abundance of trees & flowers that are found in the beautiful 166-hectare area spanning the London boroughs of Camden & Westminster This very special event begins at the Regents Park Allotment with a honey inspired picnic lunch by La Fromagerie. After lunch, Alison from Urban Bees will invite guests to make their way to the apiary, en route guests will see honeybees gathering nectar from the many trees and flowers to turn into honey, and meet some of the other types of bees that feed in the park. On arrival at the apiary guests will put on their beekeeper suits, and Brian from Urban Bees will introduce the hives in the heart of Regents Park. He will open a hive, and explain the role of the worker bees, drones and the queen and why and how they make honey

ABOUT:
Brian McCallum and Alison Benjamin co-founded Urban Bee in 2007. They have an apiary in Regent’s Park which produces the finest honey. Urban Bees also maintains a number of corporate rooftop bee hives around the capital as well as solitary bee hotels and bee-friendly gardens, and educates people about bees and nature and promotes better forage and habitat for bees. Urban Bees partnered with charity, River of Flowers, to create a solitary bee garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2018. It is a member of the Honey Club, which developed the award-winning King’s Cross Bee Trail App. 
Alison is an editor at The Guardian (when she's not helping Brian with bees) and Brian is a commercial beekeeper and former government bee inspector.  Together they have written the best-selling A World Without Bees; Keeping Bees and Making Honey; and Bees in the City. There latest book is The Good Bee: A Celebration of Bees and How to Save Them. They are married, live in Hackney, east London, and find bees endlessly fascinating.
