Since 1923, the National Honey Show has been the must-attend show of the year for British and international beekeepers, honey enthusiasts and bee-adoring visitors alike. It attracts over 200 classes of the finest honey, from port wine to straw; the colours and aromas are spectacular.
Visitors can sample or buy from a huge selection of unique blends, and browse all sorts of other bee-related products, such as mead, honey beer, honeycomb, beeswax, polish, equipment and clothing, photography, books, honey-based cakes and a range of confectionery.
Experts will be invited to share their knowledge, experience and advice with beginners, while a programme of workshops and lectures by eminent speakers will cover bee-related topics of interest and current concern.
Stands are open to the public from 2pm Thursday, after the judges have allocated prizes for the best honey.
