Callington Honey Fair is one of the largest street fairs in Cornwall, with hundreds of people visiting the town to enjoy the one day event. The modern-day fair is held annually on the first Wednesday in October and each year has a unique theme. That same theme is used for the Shop Window Competition and the Children’s Art Competition, which attracts entries from eleven primary schools in the region.

The Royal Cornwall Show is one of CBKA’s main public events of the year; with the large number of people who attend the show, it is an opportunity to reach a wide audience in the ongoing effort to educate the public regarding what we do, the plight of bees and what they can do to help.
“What a fascinating show this has been to judge”. These were the departing words just before he left to go home by Bruce Henderson Smith who was one of the two judges at this year’s Honey Show at the Callington Honey Fair.

An appeal for show entries
by M.L.Somers, Show Secretary
I am appealing to ALL members of CBKA and WCBKA to give serious consideration to entering this year’s Honey Show. Last year we had to concentrate, in the limited time available, on getting the Tent itself into shape to make it a vibrant and interesting experience for the public.
As each year’s National Honey Show draws to an end, the planning is underway for the next year. We have to be patient and wait through the winter for the bees to make their contribution, but not only do all you beekeepers continue with background preparations through the winter, but so, also, do your National Honey Show committee for the next Show.
