The British Birdwatching Fair is jointly organised by the Leicestershire & Rutland Wildlife Trust and the RSPB.

Birdfair encompasses the whole spectrum of the birdwatching industry whilst at the same time supporting global bird conservation. This is the event of the year if you’re into birds and wildlife.  A wide range of fantastic conservation projects have been supported by Birdfair. See this article for more information.

There are hundreds of stands selling the latest products for wildlife enthusiasts. You’ll find everything, from scopes to sculptures, binoculars to bird food, eGuides to eco-holidays!

We are busy planning a long list of events and lectures for you to enjoy at Birdfair 2016, hosted by Birdfair regulars Chris Packham, Simon King, Mike Dilger, Nick Baker, David Lindo and many more. With 6 Event locations, all running full programmes throughout the fair’s duration, there is something for everyone to get excited about.

This website is your complete guide to who is exhibiting and appearing at Birdfair. Information is posted as and when exhibitors, celebrity visitors and the events are confirmed, so please check back in June/July to see the full listings.

Thanks for your continued support!
