Bees’ Needs Week is a week long campaign from 8-14 July to help raise awareness of bees and other pollinators. 

During Bees’ Needs Week, London’s world-famous shopping destination is renamed ‘Carnabee Street’ and transformed into a hive of activity. 

The iconic Carnaby Street arch has been given a bee-themed makeover and a popup ‘Hive’ will open at 3 Newburgh Street from 8-13 July, with a host of educational and fun games, installations and talks.
This will include: 

  • A bumblearium giving visitors the chance to get close to the bee action 
  • Virtual Reality headsets to experience the inner workings of a bumblebee nest
  • Honey Tasting
  • The chance to look at specimens of bees up close, using microscopes
