Bees, Workshops and a Giant Sandpit at Covent Garden This Summer

Urban Farming

Covent Garden is the place to be today, with a jam-packed schedule of exciting events from talks on Urban Beekeeping, to grow-your-own workshops, at The Covent Garden Real Food Market.

Speakers’ Corner (the series of free, weekly talks and demonstrations for London’s foodie community) will feature two of the UK’s leading experts in Urban Beekeeping and Urban Allotments:

  • Thursday at 1pm: Beekeeping advice, honey & beeswax workshops with The Hive Honey Shop
  • Thursday at 6pm: Urban Farming talks and demonstrations with Capital Growth

If you can’t make it today, there’ll be more talks and demonstrations on Thursday 20 August at the same times.

Don’t forget, if you’re struggling to entertain the kids this holiday, Covent Garden is running The Kids Are Alright summer promotion until Sunday 23 August. This massive free event includes juggling and puppet workshops, cupcake decorating classes, and even a giant sandpit.

The Kids Are Alright also sees great offers on toys and family dining from some of the area’s leading shops and restaurants, including complimentary kids meals from top Covent Garden restaurants, free Disney goodies and the chance to win a Build-A-Bear Workshop party.
