What’s the Buzz? The bees have landed at the Lyric Hammersmith
Continuing the Lyric Hammersmith’s commitment to reducing its impact on the environment, the Lyric and HammersmithLondon have teamed up to install three beehives on the roof of the venue – which have become the home of approximately 180,000 Buckfast Bees.
With the bee population currently under threat, as recently highlighted by Sir David Attenborough, in just five years the population of bees has dropped by one third. BeeUrban, who have installed and will maintain the hives at the Lyric, try to address this problem by supporting bees and providing a safe area for them in which to thrive.
The hives are situated on the theatre’s green sedum roof, which will help the roof mature through pollination and help improve air quality and biodiversity in the local area.
