61st NATIONAL EXHIBITION  4th & 5th DECEMBER 2004

2004 SHOW CANCELLED

No Future Shows  Planned At This Time

On behalf of IPC Media and Cage & Aviary Birds, it is with great disappointment that I have to inform you that the 2004 National Exhibition will not be going ahead in December as planned. IPC has run the National for the last 60 years, and had intended to hold it again as usual this year. Unfortunately, since August we have found ourselves dealing with an increasing number of difficulties that were beyond our control. They make it impossible for the National to go ahead and therefore cancellation is unavoidable. We have done everything in our power to proceed with the show.  You will appreciate from previous years that the planning for the National is extremely involved and must run according to strict timelines. This week the decision has been taken that the show cannot go ahead at Stoneleigh Park (our venue). We now find ourselves with insufficient time to locate an alternative venue in time to proceed with the show. I would like to take this chance on behalf of all those involved with the National to say how sad we are that the event will not be happening.

CARE OF BIRDS 

At the show the organisers provide a First Aid room for stressed, sick and injured birds this is manned at all times by experienced bird vets, also a inspection committee that makes regular inspections of all exhibits, trade and exhibition throughout the event to ensure the well being and comfort of the birds. It is also responsible for responding to complaints from the public, and where appropriate, implementing recommendations made by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals or other bodies

Please do not carry birds around the hall in unsuitable boxes, leave them with the trader until you are ready to leave, alternately place them in the case and box store where the birds can settle, better still transfer them to a cage and supply seed & water until ready to leave, an aviary or room will be available to swap birds from boxes to cages near to the box store. remember that birds are living things and poor treatment causes stress, which causes death

Health Certificates

are available at the show at certain times, for overseas visitors but they should check that there are no restrictions to export certain species before purchase
