British Falconry & Raptor Fair

We are delighted to welcome The British Falconry & Raptor Fair to the Highclere Show in 2022.

The British Falconry & Raptor Fair, which is an event in itself, has found its new home right here at the Highclere Show. Packed full of displays from some of the country’s leading falconers and complemented by a vast range of exhibition stands, the British Falconry & Raptor Fair is a must stop-off for falconers and everyone interested in discovering more about these incredible birds of prey.
