High up on the rooftops at The Yards, above the hustle and bustle of Covent Garden, is another city that’s buzzing with life – our very own collection of beehives!
This summer, we’re partnering with charity Bee Friendly Trust to raise awareness of the importance of protecting these hard-working pollinators. Visit their donation page to see what you can do to help pollinator populations near you.
To celebrate our own urban bees, we’ve teamed up with four artists to create a series of bold installations that are dotted around The Yards for you to discover.
Find out a little more about the installations and their creators below…
We’ve still got bee-inspired workshops and activity happening throughout September.
Now, you can create your own bee-inspired artworks at home! We’ve teamed up with Helen Musselwhite, paper artist extraordinaire and creator of ‘Bees in the City’, to design a craft pack that you can order here. Follow along with our video tutorial on our IGTV.
Packs cost £6 and proceeds will go to our charity partner, Bee Friendly Trust, to help them continue their amazing work protecting urban bees.
All proceeds will go towards Bee Friendly Trust.
Visit The Yards now to discover and explore these bee-inspired installations and don’t forget to share all your photos with us – use #TheYardsAndTheBees to show us all your snaps of our beautiful art!
