Lancashire Honey Show 2017
Date: 1st October
Venue: Brockholes Nature Reserve, Preston, PR5 0AG.

As well as the honey show itself, we hope to have various stalls – wax, cosmetics, “Nurturing Nature, skep making demonstration and, if members wish, a produce stall where members’ wax, candles, honey (correctly labelled) & other products  can be sold to the visitors (with 10% of the charge to be given as a donation to our hosts, Lancashire Wildlife Trust). There will be two lectures, on a bee & pollinator theme. It is also hoped that the Activity Centre will be open to the public for bee-related activities e.g. a virtual hive tour, dressing in bee suits, colouring, drawing competition etc.

Staging is 9.30 to 10.30 am – until 10am, it will be possible to bring vehicles down to the Meadow Lake Suite to unload exhibits; after this, vehicles must be left in the car park & exhibits carried down. In order to secure free parking, car registration numbers MUST be provided on the entry form, otherwise car parking charges will apply.

Please find below the schedule and entry form.

If you have any further questions or if you can help out on the day, then please contact Elaine Hargreaves
