Prepare to bee amazed!
Join us for the Bee and Honey Centenary Show, celebrating its 100th year, taking place at Capel Manor Gardens this September. Visitors can immerse themselves in the captivating world of honeybees as they witness their daily activities in an observation hive. Do not miss this special milestone event that showcases a century of dedication to the preservation and appreciation of these remarkable insects.
Given the critical role bees play in our environment, their decline in recent years due to factors like habitat loss, pesticide exposure and climate change is a matter of concern. Shows such as this are important in educating people about protecting and supporting bee populations through conservation efforts, sustainable farming practices and creating bee-friendly habitats that are vital for maintaining healthy ecosystems and ensuring food security.
You can deepen your understanding of bees by engaging with knowledgeable exhibitors and beekeepers who will be on hand to answer your questions and provide valuable insights into the fascinating world of bees and beekeeping.
You will also have the opportunity to purchased locally made honey and for the younger attendees, there will be engaging craft activities such as candle rolling and bee badge making.*
