The Cromwell Museum team will be joined by the Huntingdon Beekeeper’s Association (HBKA). Discover a range of beekeeping equipment including a replica 17th Century ‘skep’ (hive), wax sculptures, photos and equipment, and honey for sale.

Along with honey for sale, there will also be free colouring sheets for children, and copies of 17th century recipes available inside the Museum.

The event will take place directly outside the Museum in Market Square. Entrance to the Cromwell Museum is free (with a suggested donation of £2 per visitor).
