Mayday 2008 part 1 - Dancing with Bees

This year, before we joined the Deptford Jack in the Green, Peter K, Peter J, Ezra and Kitty had an appointment with some bees.

On the roof of the Royal Festival Hall, is the Royal Festival Hive an experiment in keeping bees in a very urban environment, and part of a campaign to alert us all to the danger our bee population faces from disease and pollution.

We were invited along to dance for the bees, and produced a couple of jigs.

Myrtle enjoyed being on the roof of the Hall, and

Peter K and Kitty both got to taste the Royal Festival Honey
