This is a Budgerigar Society Silver Championship Open Show.

We set out in 2016 to try finding ways of improving our show and to try and attract additional support for the day. The result was fantastic with the entry hitting nearly 600 and the final benched figure of 489 far beyond our realistic expectations. In 2015 we benched 336 so 2016 has seen an increase of 153 on the day.
The amazing feedback we received from those that attended the show has now given us the impetus to try and push for Gold. We need just 111 more benched birds to achieve this target and are now reaching out to everyone that would like to see a Gold show in the East and South East of England to help us in our bid to attain this level.
We have listed below the incentives we have on offer to all junior entrants and with your help it is hoped that we can achieve the biggest junior entry in the country.
