Back for a fifth year, the Birmingham Honey Show is a chance to find out all about the fascinating craft of beekeeping.
You’ll be able to talk to local beekeepers, meet a queen (!), learn about the different types of bees, view observation hives, see the competition entries, make candles from beeswax and buy locally produced honey direct from the beekeepers, all in the setting of a beautiful organic community garden.
A netted live demonstration area will be set up in the woodland and you’ll be able to watch beekeepers working with bees and explaining how the beehive works and what goes on inside.
A highlight of the show will be the prize-giving ceremony at 3.30pm on Sunday 6 September. Prizes will be awarded for categories set to test the beekeepers’ skills in a range of entries including honey production, comb extraction, mead making, honey cake baking and candle making.
Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 September 2015, 10am until 4pm
