Global Birdfair

July 12, 2024 July 14, 2024

Global Birdfair aims to pick up the event baton and run a not-for-profit festival along the lines of the old Birdfair, which raised over £5m or US$6.8m for bird conservation projects worldwide over the years. In common with the original event, Global Birdfair will continue to support conservation projects with funding raised by this event.

Global Birdfair is being spearheaded by Tim Appleton MBE, founder of the original Birdfair back in 1989. “We are building a program of events to interest all generations,” says Tim Appleton. “There will be a variety of activities including lectures by guest speakers sharing their experiences and discussing topics relating to wildlife around the world.”

Many national and international sponsors and exhibitors will be in attendance. Exhibitors include conservation organizations, tourist boards, and ecotourism companies alongside exhibitors selling books, art, optical equipment, bird food, and local produce.

The location of the event is conveniently placed in the center of England and within easy reach of a wide range of transport options from London and the rest of the UK. Global Birdfair will take place at Lyndon Top. Book in advance to camp on site at Lyndon Top Caravan Park, located on the south shore of Rutland Water near Oakham, Rutland.

Tickets will go on sale via the website.
