The Association runs a stall at this show each year to showcase bees and beekeeping. Members of the association are available to share their knowledge with the public. There is an observation hive, virtual hive, a beekeeping display, and candle and badge making for the children. We sell honey from members and this is a very popular part of the attraction.

In addition, we run a honey show on behalf of the NSAS which is judged by our very own David Capon. Here is a link to the rules and schedule of the honey show:

At the moment the dates on this site are still the 2018 dates but the schedule is not changing this year so you can still rely on it.

It would be great if as many of you as possible could enter something, even if it is just a honey cake or biscuits, as this is our showcase to the world. The person scoring the most points in the show will not only be presented with the Hans Wilson Perpetual Honey Cup but also a prize of £25 kindly donated again this year by Hans.

Our display is hugely popular and it is great fun to man the stalls and chat to the general public.


We are looking for helpers to man the stall during the day. You would only need to help out for a 2 hour slot and as a reward you receive a free ticket for the Agricultural show.

The slots which we have available run from 1pm to 3pm and 3pm to 5pm.

Some of you have already volunteered, for which I am grateful, but we still need more names. So if you have done it before, and know how much fun it is, or if you have never helped out before, we need you. Even if you have only just entered the world of beekeeping you still have a lot to offer. Come along and help. If you don’t think that you know a lot, you will soon find out how much more you know than the general public!

We also need some help on the previous day, Sunday, 6 May at 4.00pm to assist in setting up the exhibit and to help clear up after the show has finished on the Monday.

Selling honey

Finally if you have wish to sell honey at the show please let me know. The branch takes a commission on honey sold, which is smaller if you help out on the day, and sellers are required to provide a spare jar for the public to taste.

Any queries or offers to help, ring Sandra Slater: 07792 702513
