Honey Auction & Dinner

Honey Auction & Dinner


11 October, 6.30pm, £60 pp

Join Fortnum’s as we celebrate ten years of our hives on the roof of our Piccadilly store with a very special occasion.

Every year, our limited edition honeys – made by our busy-buzzing bees in hives across the capital – go under the hammer in our annual auction, this year hosted by broadcaster and beekeeper Bill Turnbull.

What’s more, the auction will be accompanied by a special charity dinner: a four-course meal with canapés will place honey (what else?) at the core of the menu, served with a cocktail that includes our new honey-infused gin.

Our resident Bee Master, Steve Benbow, will also be on hand to tell guests about the history of Fortnum’s bees, and stories from the beekeeping frontline.

Proceeds from every jar sold will go to The Felix Project and Bees for Development, a charity which promotes sustainable beekeeping in developing countries; helping remote and poor families earn essential incomes with low-cost beehives to harvest and sell honey, turning natural resources into sustainable livelihoods.

Just 40 tickets are available – so book early to secure your place and avoid disappointment. Please note guests may be seated on shared tables.
