About The Show

About the show

Welcome from the 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.

This year however, we are planning to do something a bit different. 

The 2021 British Homing World Show of the Year will be the first virtual event of its kind within the pigeon racing community.

As a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, the safety of our pigeon fanciers and spectators is top priority which is why we have launched an online alternative to celebrate the sport we all love so much.

Over the course of the weekend when our main event would usually happen, there will be a range of activities, auctions and more to get the community involved in pigeon racing and showing. 

We hope you will join us in bringing the magic of this event alive virtually.

Yours in the sport
