BHW Show of the Year 2023

The largest gathering of pigeon fanciers in the United Kingdom – the BHW Show of the Year 2023 – took place at the Winter Gardens, Blackpool, over the weekend of 21st-22nd January. 

Sadly, due to the avian influenza surveillance zones in force, there were no actual show classes, but it was still a great opportunity for old friends to meet up and peruse the many auctions, trade stands etc.

The full British Homing World report on the Show can be seen here, and below are two video tours of the show, from the viewpoint of our friends at Vet-Schroeder Tollisan and Dreamteam Lofts. If anyone else has any photos or videos that they would like to share, please do get in touch.

All of the donated birds sold in the online charity auction, and raised just over £6,600 for the Show charities.

Ladies Charity Stall: Meryl and Carole would like to thank all contributors, donors and purchasers for their support. A grand total of £610 was raised, this to be shared between Diabetes and Mountain Rescue/Support Dogs. Thank you all.

The draws for the three show raffles were made at RPRA HQ, Stonehouse, this afternoon and the winners were:

As usual, there were two free accompanying issues of the British Homing World magazine – the usual weekly edition, plus a Blackpool Special, which can be read by clicking on the appropriate images below. You can also download the Gala Evening booklet.
