Postponed until 2022
It is much regret that we are going to postpone the “Festival of Bees” for this year.
Due to the rise in COVID infections particularly the Indian variation, we believe we are just a little too early to try to run the Festival of Bees this year. This has been a difficult decision particularly as the trade stand take-up has been so good, the public ticket sales are doing well but feedback is not positive with people who have booked asking for refunds due to the increased COVID reports.
On a positive note, we would like to look at rescheduling this event for September next year, and can't wait to see you all there!
Make sure you are following us on social media accounts to keep up to date with any updates!
3 Shows. 3 locations. 23rd-31st july 2021.
Detling Kent Showground is the perfect place to start the first Festival of Bees! Set in 200 acres of outdoor space with on site parking and situated just 50 miles from London, we are confident that this show will be at the beating heart of what the festival is about!
Bath and West Showground
From Kent we will be moving onto the famous Bath & West showground, 240 acres nestled in the beautiful countryside of Somerset, gateway to Somerset and Cornwall within easy reach of London and many home counties, easy reach of Bath, Yeovil, Weston-super-Mare and Glastonbury.
Yorkshire Event Centre
Finally we will be moving onto our Yorkshire site at Yorkshire Event Centre in Harrogate for the last 2 day event on the 30th & 31st July.
Festival of Bees 2021
Our festival is about so much more than just Honeybees. We want to introduce and educate the public on the importance of pollinators to the environment, as well as providing a central hub for everyone in the beekeeping community.
The Festival of Bees will become a yearly event which showcases the best traders and lectures in beekeeping and everything that surrounds the beekeeping world. With talks from various people in the industry, activity workshops, live music, and fun and games for all of the family - this is an event that is not to be missed!
