29th October - 31st October

 at St George's College, Weybridge Road, Addlestone, Surrey, KT15 2QS,

With the new National Honey Show layout, more stewards will be required this year.

Your help would be very much appreciated.

Beginners are welcome. You do not need to be an expert beekeeper but I can promise that you will learn a lot from the other beekeepers you meet. 

The deal is that you get free entry to the show, work for half a day at the direction of the chief steward and the rest of the day is yours to enjoy the show.  You even get £5 to buy a sandwich!   

You have to take what’s given so you could be watching over the security of some of the displays whilst talking to visitors, directing visitors around the show, marshalling the crowds in the lecture theatres or anything else that comes up.


If you would like to do that please apply as soon as possible to the Steward, Bill Fisher:–  steward@honeyshow.co.uk
