The Alnwick and District Beekeepers Association (ADBKA) is one of three Beekeeping Associations in Northumberland and Tyneside. We are one of the oldest Beekeeping Associations in the Country. Our origins are lost in the mists of time, but we have records of meetings dating back to the early 1890’s!

We are a welcoming and helpful group of around 120 people covering the whole length and breadth of the county. We are dedicated to the welfare of the Honey Bee, and strive to teach (and learn) more about the craft every year. Our membership ranges from complete novices to people who have been keeping bees for 50 years or more.

If you are interested in joining us, please go to our membership page and REMEMBER, no experience necessary, we were all beginners once.
