Monmouth Bee Festival 3 May 2020

United Kingdom

3 May 2020 The Nelson Garden, Monmouth NP25 3UZ

A Bees for development event

Welcome to the UK's first and only World Bee Festival!

On the 20th December 2017, the United Nations General Assembly officially declared May 20th as World Bee Day.

To celebrate World Bee Day, Bees for Development and Bee Friendly Monmouthshire host the UK's only World Bee Festival, called the Monmouth Bee Festival.


Monmouth’s best family friendly event, celebrating the work of bees.

Proceeds help raise funds for local work protecting bees.

Taste honey, buy bee friendly plants, meet local beekeepers and then relax in the shade of the old sycamore tree with a fresh cup of tea and cake.


Dr Nicola Bradbear, founder of BfD said, “We all owe so much to bees. BfD witnesses every day how they revitalise impoverished communities across the planet, by delivering sustainable livelihoods. This Monmouth festival is all about celebrating bees – with a range of fantastic activities for everyone at Nelson Garden and across the town from 10am. With live bees, a bee theatre, family fun activities, competitions, plants, stalls, food, drink and so much more, there’ll be a real buzz across Monmouth. We're encouraging everyone in the local community to support the event and show their love for bees.”


All proceeds go towards Bees for Development.
