87th National Honey Show, Surrey Oct 25-27
The 87th National Honey Show takes place at Sandown Park Racecourse, Esher, Surrey. Come along and admire the spectacular display of competitive honey, wax and craft entries. Wander the lively trade hall filled with not only beekeeping supplies but a variety of specialist book, microscopy, wildflower, jewellery, soap, cosmetic and information stands. Look down a microscope, find out about bees and beekeeping and ask lots of questions. Workshops include preparing cosmetics and toiletries, preparing honey, mead or beer for showing (and consuming) to photography, and skep making. Our varied programme of lectures ranges from internationally renowned bee scientists, and on Friday a series of young UK researchers talking about their latest research, to a Saturday lecture series for those either thinking about taking up, or in the early years of beekeeping. It is a fantastic show, a great venue, everything all under one roof, a cafeteria, wifi, free parking: a brilliant day out. MORE: www.honeyshow.co.uk.
