This years event will incorporate the annual Honey Show of Nottinghamshire Bee Keepers Association, whose beehives are housed in the kitchen garden at Woodthorpe Park.
There will be the opportunity to see live bees, buy local honey and pick up information about bee keeping.
Alison Knox from the NBKA says: This event has always been a highlight of the beekeeping year and is not only a massive draw for the public but also for our members, who look forward to the opportunity to show off their produce and take home a few certificates. We regard our annual competition as a way of encouraging new beekeepers to get involved, to raise the standards of their honeybee management, and to feel part of something very special.
Many of the competition entrants will be bringing honey that has probably been produced from the trees and flowers in Woodthorpe Park, as many of us live quite locally.
