Forthcoming Events

All the shows detailed below will be subject to the AI regulations in force at the time of the event.

The number of cases is tailing off, but it is a very long tail and we remain in ‘flockdown’. The statutory requirements are continually being re-assessed. Disease outbreaks do tend to follow cycles; indications from the surveillance team at DEFRA suggests that we are likely to see it recurring this coming winter. Official advice is urging us to consider permanent upgrades to our biosecurity, and to adopt good practice throughout the year.

See: Avian Influenza (Bird flu)

Summer events tend to have only small poultry and waterfowl sections, or a waterfowl display. The main shows and exhibitions are in the winter though, when birds are in their fresh breeding plumage. Our own BWA events are spread throughout the year. They usually include visits and activities not normally open to the public. Admission to BWA events is by ticket only.

Contact details are included for you to check the accuracy of the dates of the events. Please check before setting out.
