Conwy Honey Fair
Wednesday September 13 2017
You've missed this event
Conwy in northern Wales is a truly gorgeous market town, with stunning surrounding countryside and some pretty impressive architecture – it’s also home to a number of busy beekeepers. Now I love honey, and if I can buy it locally from the UK I will. We all know how important bees are to our eco-system, and beekeeping has been recognised throughout history. Thoreau famously stated that, ‘the keeping of bees is like the direction of sunbeams’. In fact, the Conwy Honey Fair is truly one of the oldest fairs in the UK, which is quite a feat when you consider how many go on across the country. The humble honey fairing Conwy was founded in Charter by Edward I some 700 years ago. As it’s such an old fair, the dates on which it’s held are prescribed in the charter. So, take the opportunity and head on up for the day. It’s a fantastic opportunity to meet the UK beekeepers and honey producers and learn about projects abroad, such as Bees For Development (for which the fair raises funds) and potter about the other local arts and crafts stalls that will be lining the High Street and Lancaster Square.
