Calling all worker bees, drones and nurse bees, your Queen awaits!

Our latest festival and events work, The Hive, is coming to the Mandurah Arts Festival (14-16 October)

There is a buzz around the hive and we need busy worker bees to please the Queen. She needs flowers made with delicious pollen so fruit can be made!

Join our beekeepers for a hive of crafty activity. A busy bee of making, flying and playing in this immersive interactive journey from flower to pollination!

Only bees on their best bee-havior will get to go to the Hive to see the Queen Bee and do the waggle dance.

You are guaranteed to get a buzz out of it!

Presented by Go for 2&5, The Hive explores themes of connection, teamwork, and sustainability. It teaches young people and adults alike the process of pollination and the importance of the hardworking bees coming together as a community for a common goal.

Event details:

  • Saturday, 15 October, from 10am – 4pm
  • Sunday, 16 October, from 10am – 4pm
