The Bees & Honey Marquee at the Devon County Show won the Features Silver Medal in 2017, and for 2018 the marquee will include Candle Rolling, Honey Sales, Honey Tasting, and Equipment Sales stalls; Asian Hornet exhibit; Live Bee Handling and the Honey, Wax & other exhibits’ Competition.

The DBKA Show Committee running the Marquee is always supported by an enthusiastic group of volunteer Stewards, without whom it would not be possible to present the outstanding profile of the DBKA properly to the public.  We are always looking for new volunteers – particularly the younger ones of you out there and those new to the Branches across the County.  The commitment ranges from a single half-day to a full 3 days of help – the choice is yours – and there are opportunities to help on a particular stall or section, or in a general role.  An entry ticket to the Show is included, which means you can enjoy the show as well – for free – in return for your help.  Parking at the Show is free.

Anyone interested in having a thoroughly rewarding and enjoyable day out, and joining a very friendly and enthusiastic team, please contact me on 01805-601715; 07789-435477; or e-mail  I look forward to hearing from as many of you as possible.

The ‘Taste of Honey’ Stall

traditionally offers honey from around the county so that people may taste and then, hopefully, buy from the Honey Sales Stall.  We are asking for donations from all Branches, from those members selling honey at the show, and as many members as can spare a couple of jars.  Please let me know if you are able to donate any type of honey to help us maintain our diversity of choice –; 01803-855420.

‘Taste of Honey’ Stall Manager
