Spring, Autumn, and Winter meetings (January to April, and then September to December) are held at 7.15 pm on the 3rd Monday of the month. There will normally be an improvers teaching session starting at 6.30pm before the main meeting.

Meetings will be at Middlesbrough Bowling Club, Cornfield Road, Middlesbrough, TS5 5QL.

Summer meetings are held at members apiaries. Please bring full protective clothing (Suit, wellies, gloves - the association has some suits for new members). To aid bee hygiene and reduce the risk of the spread of disease please come with clean equipment. Please telephone hosts to let them know you intend to be there and for directions.

We provide beekeeping displays for the Cleveland and Stokesley shows.

If you would like such a display at your event we are able to support a small number of extra events if given enough advance notice (please contact diary@teesbees.co.uk).
