This year BEEWORLD is hosted by St.Albans Division who have decided upon a change of venue and consequently a change of date for Beeworld 2010. It will be held at the Hertfordshire County Showground, Redbourn, AL3 7PT on Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th May 2010 from 9:00am until 5:30pm.
The coordinators for Beeworld are:
  • Marian Whittaker, 1 The Old Dairy, Kinsbourne Green Lane, Harpenden AL5 3PF, Mobile: 07778 280706,
  • Luke Adams, 53, Park Street Lane, Park Street, St.Albans AL2 2JA, Tel: 01727 768578, Mobile: 07958 324494,
BEEWORLD will be over two days (three if you include set up) and we need to know which divisions will be present on what days, as well as, what you will be doing on your stand and how many people attending. We do though need to know the number of tables you need by 6th April to pass on to the County Show organisers. Please email or telephone Marian by 6th April.
We will confirm your entry and supply entry passes for the Herts show.
We will ensure that each division providing a display will have 4 passes per day which will be free to the divisions.  In addition there will be a limited number of  show passes which members can buy at the very favourable rate of £10.50 (normal rate £14.50) in exchange for two hours help in manning stands.  HBKA will buy these from the organisers and sell them on at cost to individual members, or divisions can work out their own deal with their members. All tickets deals will only be available to divisions supplying a display and cheap tickets are for helpers only, not all your aunties and cousins!
Last year the following divisions attended Beeworld 2009 doing the following:
  • Bishops Stortford – Honey Extraction
  • North Herts – Display of Nectar Producing plants
  • South East Herts – Observation hive & candle rolling
  • St.Albans – Pollination & promotion of beekeeping
  • Welwyn – Sale of members hive products
We would welcome the same involvement again if divisions wish but please let us know what you are doing and on what days!
We would also very much welcome Barnet and West Herts Beekeeping divisions – please get in touch.
