The BHW Show of the Year 2019 is here – it is taking place in Blackpool this weekend.
The largest gathering of pigeon fanciers in the UK is descending on the Winter Gardens for the two-day event that has something for everyone, whether you are a veteran flyer, new member, or just curious about pigeons, from trade stands, talks, films and auctions, to the main event: the showing and judging of over 2000 of the top pigeons in the country.
The show is one of the largest in the world, regularly attracting 25,000 visitors, and the profits are donated to a variety of charities.
It’s also a great chance for old friends to meet up, of course. Click on the image below left to book your hotel room for the show at special rates, available on an exclusive basis.

Two charity auctions will also take place at the Show: a Grand Auction in the Opera House on Saturday at 11.30am, followed immediately by a Continental Charity Auction in the Renaissance Room. See the lots for sale by clicking on the appropriate image below.
Please note that the Spanish Hall at the Winter Gardens is currently unavailable due to ongoing renovation, and the Gala Evening is being held at Viva Blackpool, 3 Church Road, Blackpool, only 250 yards from the Winter Gardens. (Click on the map to see a large version.)
As in the past few years, there are two accompanying issues of the British Homing World magazine – the usual weekly edition, plus a Blackpool Special. These are available to view online free of charge by clicking on the appropriate image below.
