A highlight of the show will be the prize-giving ceremony at 3pm on Sunday 17 September. Trophies will be presented and prizes awarded for categories set to test the beekeepers’ skills in a range of entries including honey production, comb extraction, mead making, honey cake baking and candle making. We’re delighted to announce that the Lord Mayor of Birmingham, Councillor Sue Underwood, will be presenting the trophy awards.
Remember to bring cash (since there are no cash points at Martineau Gardens): there will be plant sales and refreshments available throughout the Birmingham Honey Show.
Exhibitors to be announced.
