What’s on

Monmouth Bee Festival is back for 2022

We are excited to announce that the bee festival will be taking place again in 2022.

Date: July 2 & 3

Locations: Monmouth Gardens and Green Spaces, Chippenham Fields & The Nelson Garden

On Saturday July 2, private gardens around Monmouth will be open to the public and there will be activities for families at Two River Meadows. Enjoy a full day of workshops, activities and family fun at the festival on Sunday July 3. Games, crafts, hands on beekeeping demos, willow weaving, face painting and fishing for bees will play a part in making the Monmouth Bee Town a great place to bee.

Choose from free entertainment to ticketed workshops (book ahead to avoid missing out), spend a day in the park eating pizza and honey with more foodie options than ever before!
