Forthcoming Events

Our list of upcoming events was growing as Covid restrictions were being lifted, but sadly now there is a ban on poultry gatherings (including: shows, sales and movement of poultry from multiple origins in the same vehicle), from midnight on Sunday the 7th November until further notice, due to cases of AI.

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.was
