"The 2014 British Falconry & Raptor Fair - that organisers call the UK's Premier Falconry and Hawking Event - is being held at a new venue this year- Chetwynd Park, Newport, Shropshire on the Bank Holiday Weekend of Sunday 4th May and Monday 5th May. The event is being held in beautiful Shropshire countryside, and promises to be a fantastic two-day family-fun weekend which will showcase some great entertainment.
Sponsored by Kiezebrink, this year’s Falconry Fair celebrates its’ 25th anniversary, and will be host to specialist exhibitors from across the UK; Europe and North America. Visitors can find out everything they need to know about falconry, from the art of flying; rearing, breeding, management, conservation, art, equipment, telemetry and of course see some premier falcons and raptors. They will also be able to take part in some hands-on falconry workshops. In addition to a superb static display of trained hawks and falcons there will also be several trained hunting eagles on static display.
An eagle display titled ‘The World of Eagles’ will be co-ordinated by the British Falconers Club giving visitors the opportunity to experience the majesty of the eagle close-up. There will also be an extensive programme of stunning flying demonstrations and displays by the best falconers, including the internationally-renowned Jemima Parry Jones, MBE, and famous falconer Bob Dalton. Informative exhibitions by the Hawk Board, Raptor Rescue and the Campaign for Falconry, and major national countryside organisations will add to the ingredients for a fantastic weekend... all part of the world’s premier falconry event for 2014.
