About The Show

About the show

Welcome from the Show Chairman, David Trippett

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 the showing and judging of over 2,000 of the top homing pigeons in the UK.

Following our virtual show in 2021 the show committee made the bold decision to reinstate a physical show for 2022 to celebrate the show’s 50th year, although restricted in numbers due to the ongoing pandemic it was generally considered a success and was welcomed back onto the calendar of the pigeon world.

We are very grateful to all who supported us in this venture whether they be sponsors, competitors, trade stand holders or just attended the show, it rewarded the immense amount of work invested by the committee and a dedicated RPRA staff.

We look forward to 2023 our fifty-first show, hopefully under more normal conditions with full service resumed, and we hope to see you all there.

Yours in the sport
