Lancashire and North West BKA Convention and County Honey Show 2nd October

Venue: ARCHBISHOP TEMPLE SCHOOLSt. Vincents Road, Fulwood, Preston, PR2 8RA

Details, booking forms and schedule are available on the L&NW BKA website:



Ideally we would like everyone to enter a few exhibits in the show and stay to attend the lectures, browse the stalls, participate in the raffle and catch up with fellow beekeepers, maybe for the first time in nearly 2 years! However, if you just want to enter the show (no lunch or access to the lectures) or just attend the convention, then these options are available.


The Show, this year, has a wider range of classes including some limited to Lancashire members, some open to anybody and extra branch classes – something for everybody, even if you are still to get some bees or are just beginning your beekeeping journey!  We urge you to have a good look at the schedule and get some entries in!


The Convention includes lectures given by 2 excellent speakers and hopefully everyone from the newest to the most experienced beekeeper will learn something. There will also be stalls, a raffle and …….. lots of other people with a passion for bees!


Have a look at the information on the website and complete your online booking form.

(Don’t forget to also email your show entry form separately!).


Make a note of the dates for the Convention Early Bird Discount and the closing date for show entries.

Let’s make this first event “post-Covid” a real success!

90th National Honey Show 21st to 23rd OctoberT

The 2021 National Honey Show venue is at Sandown Park Racecourse, Esher, Surrey, KT10 9AJ, UK. The committee are delighted to be planning a live National Honey Show this October, and to invite you to join them.

They are, of course, aware that circumstances may change. We may have to adapt further to prevailing government and venue restrictions, but are of course hoping that this is worst case, and restrictions may be more relaxed for the show.

As things stand at the present, this will be the format for the October Show:

  • Face masks mandatory except when eating or drinking
  • One way system
  • Maximum 1,000 people in the venue

They are keen to ensure the honey show and trade show take place safely, all within the large Surrey Hall as usual. But please bear with us should distancing and the one way system still be in place.

They look forward to welcoming you to this year’s show.
