Bees for business at the St Ermin’s Hotel, September 2013

Bees St Ermin’s Hotel
It is harvest time, so this September, the St Ermin’s Hotel will be celebrating the hard work of their 300,000 rooftop Buckfast bees with honey-themed menus and cocktails and for the first time this year, groups can try their hand themselves and find out more about keeping urban bees with a brand new workshop on site.

Throughout the month, day delegates will be served a selection of delicious honey themed items as part of their breaks, such as lemon polenta and honey cake, honey and butter flapjacks or sultanas and honey granola bars.

New - Urban Bee Keeping Workshops:
“As well as bees on our roof, we also now have three beehives and a ‘bee hotel’ happily ensconced on our third floor walkway surrounded by a small wildflower garden. So we are now also able to offer small groups a special urban bee keeping workshop run at the hotel by our beekeeper, Camilla Goddard of Capital Bee”, commented Tom Walsh, Sales Director MICE, St Ermin’s Hotel.

Workshops can be individually tailored, but principally are for groups of up to 12 from £15 per head, last around two hours and involve active learning about colony establishment and regular care, handling of the honeycombs plus reference materials. All beekeeper suits and equipment will be supplied and the session is followed by a honey cream tea or cocktail for participants.
