In spite of nationwide outbreaks of Avian Influenza, and the ongoing threat of Covid-19, this show went ahead on Sunday 5th December 2021. Attendance was reasonable in the circumstances, and following torrential rain on set-up day on Saturday, Sunday proved bright and sunny, although very cold. It was good to be able to meet people properly again, and see some good birds displayed for sale and exchange.

This year's event will be on Sunday 4th December 2022. It is normally held at the Stafford County Showground ST18 0BD, inside the Argyle and Sandylands Centres. Although this event is a much smaller show than the National Exhibition or the summer show, it is the ideal opportunity to get those essential items needed to keep your birds in tip top condition over the winter or even acquire additional birds to make up those pairs ready for next years breeding season. This also means it's a good opportunity to sell any left over stock or late bred birds not quite ready for sale at the National.
Our 2019 show featured our first ever display aviary competition. See - Stafford Aviary Competition There are always trade stands there selling all the essentials for keeping birds, so whether you are a hardened breeder or owner of a single pet budgie, there will be something there for you. If you are interested in having a Trade Stand, please contact the office, or download this PDF application form for completion and sending into the office with your payment -
Once again, children under 16 accompanied by a paying adult enter free.
Please Note: There is no holding room facility at this show.
