The BHW Show of the Year 2025

The British Homing World Show of the Year is a two-day event held every January at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool, attracting around 15,000 visitors. It is the highlight of the year for pigeon fanciers, who come from all over the world to show their birds as part of a historic community celebration. 

Each year we have over 100 trade stands, charity pigeon auctions, raffles for new lofts and a holiday in Malta, as well as the showing and judging of over 2,000 of the top homing pigeons in the UK.

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!

Nothing beats a breezy January weekend in Blackpool, and meeting up with old friends at the Winter Gardens.
