Held at the award winning National Centre for Birds of Prey 27 & 28 June 2020

The British Falconry Fair has been the largest and most visited falconry fair in Europe since its inception back in 1990. 2017 sees the Fair heading to a new venue – the grounds of the fantastic National Centre for Birds of Prey, Duncombe Park in north Yorkshire. The Fair will continue to be a moveable feast. In 2018 it will head to the International Centre for Birds of Prey (ICBP) in Gloucestershire before returning back to Duncombe in 2019. In the years when the fair is elsewhere the National Centre for Birds of Prey will continue to host its own falconry event. Now under new management the 2017 Fair will be a fresh start. A world class series of ring events will showcase the very best in flying demonstrations from the best display falconers in the business. Simon Jewit from Stoneycairn Gundogs will return to show us how to train and manage working dogs. Seminars are yet to be announced, but Mark Naguib MRCVS will return to talk about the veterinary aspects of captive raptors. Sunday night will see us lighting the BBQ and keeping the bar open late. Trust me – we know how to hold a BBQ at Duncombe!! It is rumoured that our popular quiz a “Question of Squawk” will be returning in 2019!!! There an onsite camping area. It’s basic, but right in the heart of things. Please remember – you’ve got to prebook and spaces are limited. However the B&Bs, hotels and campgrounds of Helmsley are just a short walk away. Please note that as the fair is held within the National Centre for Birds of Prey – no dogs are permitted.

The award winning National Centre for Bird of Prey will be hosting its annual Raptor Fair again in 2020 – on 27 & 28 June. Aimed at falconers, bird of prey keepers and anyone interested in these wonderful birds – the Raptor Fair is the premier bird of prey event in the UK

It appears that the Raptor Fair will be the only UK fair dedicated to falconers and falconry in 2019. Accept no imitations! See you again soon 🙂
