UK's The National Honey Show Talks

(The following is brought to us by CATCH THE BUZZ (Kim Flottum) Bee Culture, The Magazine of American Beekeeping, published by A.I. Root Company.)  

UK’s National Honey Show Results and Talks Available:

The 2013 National Honey Show is now over and you can find the Full Results and the Cup Awards list on the website together with the slide shows for each day. These are available to download from DropBox to use in newsletters, websites and publicity purposes.

The latest news is as follows:

As the planned building work has been postponed indefinitely, we’re back at St Georges College Weybridge for 2014. Half term is a little later next year so the dates are Thursday 30th October to Saturday 1st November 2014.

Judging takes place Thursday morning, the show officially opens at 2pm on Thursday, and the exhibition opens when judging finishes. We plan to continue the Thursday morning lectures, before the official opening and the trade hall will open at 12 noon on Thursday.

This year, partly funded by the National Honey Show, and partly with National Lottery Funding, we were able to produce top quality videos of some of the lectures. The first two of these, ‘The Sustainable Apiary’ by Mike Palmer, from Vermont, USA, and ‘Origins and Evolutionary History of the Honey Bee’ by Robert Paxton, UK are now available to view on

YouTube: http://youtu.be/nznzpiWEI8A and http://youtu.be/Wtm8URk-V9A respectively. We would like to thank our lecture sponsors and all who took part in this project. We hope it will mitigate the disappointment of all who were not able to be in two places at once during the show, giving you a chance to catch up at leisure. Details of further lectures available to watch will be listed as they go live, on the National Honey Show Website http://www.honeyshow.co.ukunder the ‘Education’ tab. It would be brilliant to be able to continue offering videos of our lectures in the future, so do contact us with all ideas for future sponsorship.

We have a new Facebook page so do visit from time to time to see the latestnews: https://www.facebook.com/nationalhoneyshow

Wishing all a well earned rest over the winter, and a good beekeeping season next year with prize winning results.
