Here you will find everything you need to prepare for and enter our 2017 Honey Show.
There are classes for other things, not just honey, so everyone can enter. The Show is open to all, so please encourage your friends and family to take part.
The Show is in the large upstairs room at The Main Place, Railway Drive, Coleford GL16 8RH on Saturday 7th October. Click here for a map.
For dropping off your entries there is a small car park directly outside the Main Place, and the Coleford town centre car park is only 100 metres away and parking there costs only 20p for two hours.
Our Judge this year is Dave Maslen, President of Avon Beekeepers Assocation and a very experienced beekeeper and judge.
While the judging is taking place tea and coffee will be available, there will be honey tasting and microscopy demonstrations, and Jonathan Axe will be running a testing general knowledge quiz. A free light lunch will be provided after the award presentations.
