The BHW Show of the Year 2023

Join us for the BHW Show of the Year 2023 to celebrate the pigeon racing community as part of the largest event of its kind in Europe.

The annual event is one of the largest gatherings of pigeon fanciers in the United Kingdom and attracts more than 15,000 visitors each year. 

Sponsored by


Bucktons is the name that's highly regarded across the pigeon community. It's tried, tested and trusted for its highly competitive mixtures for both professional and amateur fanciers and breeders.

As a long-term sponsor of the BHW Show of the Year, our unrivalled commitment to the sport means that we have dedicated more resources to creating advanced formulations for our customers.

The Bucktons Promise - only the very best ingredients are incorporated into the Bucktons Pigeon range. Champions aren't made by chance!
