London Honey Show 2015 announces first ever weekend date

The London Honey Show at the Lancaster London is to be held on a weekend for the first time in five years, due to growing demand.

Set to take place on Sunday 11 October in the hotel's 1,500-capacity Westbourne Suite from 11am to 4pm, the show is a celebration of bees and beekeeping, and is suitable for producers and buyers as well as members of the public.

The show will include stalls, exhibits, talks from bee experts and a chance to sample the honey products. The £1 entry fee will be donated to a bee charity.

It will also hold the London Honey Show Awards, with categories including Best Home Honey, Best Rooftop Honey, Best Business Honey, Best Honey Packaging, and a South versus North of the Thames award.

The biggest prize of the night will be the Beekeeper of the Year, for which nominations are now open at www.londonbees.com. Last year's winner was Maddie Appleton, who manages hives in the city and runs youth workshops for young people's organisation Hounslow Action for Youth.

Lancaster London itself has 10 beehives on its second floor roof, which provide honey for dishes on its banqueting menus, as well as in its restaurant the Island Grill, and the Lounge Bar.
