Welcome to the Malvern and Upton Beekeepers Association. We are a branch of the Worcestershire Beekeeping Association, which in turn is an area association of the British Beekeepers Association (BBKA). We are an active group with members who live in Malvern; Upton upon Severn and the surrounding area. Our membership ranges from beginners to individuals for whom beekeeping has been a lifetime's hobby.
Each year the Malvern and Upton Beekeepers Association hosts a series of beekeeping theory courses. These courses start in February and consist of 6 evening sessions. The course is an ideal introduction for those who want to start beekeeping or just learn about the subject. For those intending to keep bees the theory course leads on to practical sessions which the Association runs on a Thursday evening during the Spring and Summer months. For more details about the course please refer to the courses menu.
