Raptor Fair, National Centre for Birds of Prey, He


The British Falconry Fair has been the largest and most visited falconry fair in Europe since its inception back in 1990.

2018 sees the Fair remaining at its 2017 venue – the grounds of the fantastic National Centre for Birds of Prey, Duncombe Park in north Yorkshire.

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.

Saturday 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 again in 2018!!!

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.
