Urban Beehives

Up until 2012 I had two rooftop apiaries in London. One on the roof of the Royal Festival Hall at the South bank, the second on the roof of SPACE sudios, London Fields, east London.

The apiary on the rooftop at the Royal Festival Hall was started in 2008 by myself and Andrew Hinton, with John Chapple of the London Beekeepers association taking the lead role. The main hive was designed as a scale model of the Royal Festival Hall and name the Royal Festival Hive. This apiary closed down due to building work on the roof.
