National Honey Show

Virtual National Honey Show 2020
Due to concerns about holding such a large show under the cloud of Covid-19, this year’s National Honey Show will now be a virtual event to which everyone is invited both in the UK and worldwide.

Whilst we will greatly miss seeing you all in person, as part of the National Honey Show community we hope you will enjoy our series of virtual workshops and lectures, with the opportunity to ask questions afterwards in real time. If you’ve never physically attended the show before, this will offer a taster for what will be on offer in addition to our usual display of honey, hive products and craft entries, next year and at subsequent shows into the future.

The show runs across three days. For this year, Thursday 22nd, Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th October 2020. We are planning pre-recorded demonstration workshops and lectures with live questions and answers during the day and on-line social events in the evenings.

More timetable and programme details will be available shortly.

Bob Maurer, National Honey Show Committee Chair said “This year’s National Honey Show is rising to the challenge of providing something different, which will more than fill the void, as the show will be sorely missed by our team and visitors. We want to bring you a flavour of the upbeat zest and excitement which characterises the show and entice new visitors to come along to the bigger and better show planned for 2021.”

Dates for future shows: 21st to 23rd October 2021 at Sandown Park Racecourse, Esher, Surrey, UK.

Promoting the highest quality honey and wax products with international classes, lecture convention, workshops and beekeeping equipment trade show.

The new schedule will be available from August.
