Schedule and Entry Forms and Special Entry Classes for Younger Beekeepers See Download Schedule.
Workshop booking now open. See Workshop Booking.
To reduce queuing and for admin reasons, we are asking everyone to renew their Membership or purchase Day Tickets and/or Streaming Tickets online before midnight on Monday 11th October.
The day ticket options are provided to those who do not wish to be members, usually only visiting for the one day. In past years these were sold on the door (not online). This year it was decided not to sell entry tickets on the door to avoid queues forming.

We can’t wait to bring you a live show and see you face to face. We have to be realistic though. There will almost certainly be some social distancing requirements during the show (we will work with the Jockey Club at Sandown Park to minimise the impact on you) but things may not be quite as you remember them from our last live show in 2019. For example this year, in order to reduce queues, you will need to renew your membership or buy your admission tickets in advance through our website shop. There will not be the usual opportunity to buy tickets on the door. If that’s a problem let us know well in advance so we can help you. We have always tried to be ‘the friendly show’.
We may have to reduce the number of people attending our lectures if that is what Government legislation and the Jockey Club requires. We may also need to restrict the number of attendees for our workshops. Please bear with us. We will be doing our utmost to bring you the best show we can deliver within the Covid requirements in place at the time. We are also looking at ways to bring you a ‘hybrid’ show so look out for on-line activities.
As always, we are grateful for the wonderful support we receive from our patrons and sponsors. We are lucky to have support at all levels from individual patrons, the Wax Chandlers Company, Kerax and CB Dennis Trust through county associations to individual class sponsorship. We couldn’t run the show without your contributions. Thank you so much.
With your support and tolerance for whatever restrictions Covid 19 inflicts on us we will have a great show. I’m really looking forward to being back at Sandown Park and I hope I will have the chance to talk to you there.
