Forthcoming Events

With a sense of normality returning, we are looking forward to more events opening up.

Although the wild bird cases of bird flu have dwindled , good biosecurity standards remains key to protecting your birds.


Summer events tend to have only small poultry and waterfowl sections, or a waterfowl display. These have not been included for some time and will take a while to get going again. 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.

Photo exhibition from the Champion Waterfowl Exhibition at Stroud in October.

The location, near Daventry, is very much in the centre of the country. There are numerous attractions nearby, such as the British Motor Museum, Weedon Royal Ordinance Depot (great for antiques) and Warwick Castle.
