We have an active programme throughout the year.

DSBA Apiary Open Day

In the summer members and their guests are invited to the DSBA apiary where they can see first-hand the development work, chat with the apiary committee, and guests can have an opportunity to look inside a hive.

If you are interested in visiting the DSBA Apiary please visit here for further information.

Social Events

Our summer outing visits a bee-related venue. At the end of the year, members get together for a social dinner in November.

DSBA Honey Show

After the busy summer months and harvesting honey, to mark the end of the active bee-keeping season we hold a honey show in October.  This is your opportunity to show off the fruits of your (bees) labour and compete for the coveted Val Johns trophy. A list of categories and previous years’ winners can be found here.

Evening Lectures

From September to April, we meet in the evening on the first Tuesday of every month at Dunblane Cathedral Halls to listen to guest speakers talk on a wide range of bee-keeping topics from Deformed Wing Virus to Scottish Pollen Analysis. 

2022/23 Programme

From September 2022 to April 2023, we are planning a programme of events, most of which will be held at Dunblane Cathedral Halls, and others that will be delivered online. Check the What’s On link below.

Scottish Beekeepers Association Events

The Scottish Beekeepers Association also has an active programme of summer and winter activities to which all SBA members are invited.  Find the current list of SBA events here.
