A highlight of the show will be the prize-giving ceremony at 3pm on Sunday 2 September. Trophies will be presented by the Bishop of Birmingham The Right Reverend David Urquhart. 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.
