About The Event


Cliffe Castle Museum
Keighley, BD20 6LQ

Airedale Beekeepers Association (ABKA) will stage its first honey show since 2019 at Cliffe Castle Museum on 22 October 2022.  A chance for beekeepers from across the Aire Valley to come together, talk bees and honey and achieve some recognition for their hard work during the beekeeping season.

The Honey Show competition for ABKA members has eighteen competition classes, recognising the quality and flavour of different types of honey and for hive products and honey related items such as beeswax candles, honey cake and bee photography.   Airedale Beekeepers awards the four most important categories with historic cups owned for decades by the Association, which started in the Aire Valley in 1908.

The Honey Show takes place on the same day as Cliffe Castle’s annual Apple Day.  After the completion of judging, members of the public are invited to view the honey show exhibits in the Education Room between 2pm and 3:30pm.  Entry is free.  ABKA honey will be on sale.
