The Hampshire Beekeeping Association Honey Show will be at Sir Harold Hillier Gardens, Romsey on 1-2 October 2016.
If you’ve got it, flaunt it! Are you pleased and proud of the honey and wax that you have harvested from your hard-working bees? Don’t keep it to yourself – click on the Honey Show image above to find out which classes you can enter. This is a honey show for all Hampshire members, new or experienced, young or old. Go on – what can you lose? Your bees deserve the accolade.
What do we need?

We hope as many members of Hampshire Beekeepers Associations will enter for the Honey Competition this year thus allowing them to sell their wares at the show itself on 1st and 2nd October. Please print off forms for your use and we look forward to selling your honey or wax. Secretaries, please make members who are not on line aware. Sales Rules
