Bees With Champagne @ Fortnum & Mason

Posh Piccadilly purveyors Fortnum & Mason show off their bee colonies in a series of special events beginning in April. Visitors will get to see the roof-top hives, followed by a honey-tasting in the store's Crypt space. From June, and to mark the (human) Queen's 60th year on the throne, participants will also get to sip Jubilee Cuvee Champagne, which apparently has a "unique affinity with honey".

The apian attraction is available on the following dates: 19 April, 4 May, 7 June, 8 June, 6 July, 3 August, 9 August. Tickets are £25 for the first two dates, and £35 for the remaining days, which include the Champers. Book your spot by phoning F&M on 0845 602 5694.

Oh em gee! I can actually do this in the shop the royals shop in to celebrate the actual queens 60th year on benefits??!!

What a lucky subject I am :o)


I approve of F & M keeping bees, and it tickled me to read that they live in exquisite eau-de-nil residences!  I wonder if they buzzzzz in posh accents?!
