The Federation of Middlesex Beekeepers' Associations, known as the "Middlesex Federation" or the "Federation", is our local area association of the BBKA.   Through our membership of the Federation, our members become members of the BBKA with its benefits outlined below.

The aims of the BBKA, the Middlesex Federation and North London Beekeepers are all relatively similar and relate to the furtherance of the craft of beekeeping and education of the public in its importance.

The Federation has the following functions:

  • Organisation of the Middlesex classes of the National Honey Show in late Autumn and awarding cups and prizes for the best entries.
